Race report: Tri-Adventure 2hr Sprint & 1hr Trail Run - Effingham, Surrey, Sunday 19th May 2013

The Tri-Adventure summer trilogy swept into Effingham, located on the doorstep of the North Downs ridge.  Effingham was stunning – glorious views of rolling hills, glowing in the morning sun, could be seen from the warm and welcoming registration.

As always the races were fun and the first class facilities provided a haven for race preparations. Free tea and coffee was consumed as everyone enjoyed a good chat with others in our community.  The hugely popular Adventure Racing Training Academy had run the day before, giving enthusiastic newcomers to adventure racing a day of theory and practical exercises on adventure racing fundamentals, skills, strategy and kit. 

Dave Rollins was on hand to offer the participants a helping hand for their first real adventure race on day two of the course.  As racers registered and collected their maps small groups were huddling, planning strategies and tactics for the race.

Tri-Adventure 2hr Sprint & 1hr Trail Run - Effingham, Surrey, Sunday 19th May 2013

Gil Cramer from F.I.T Concepts kindly ran a pre-event warm up session, getting everyone stretched and limbered up – outside in the sunshine, a nice treat compared to the harsh weather in March!

The klaxon sounded at 10am and competitors were off in many different directions, showing there are many ways to attack an adventure race!  The course was fast due to the lack of rain recently allowing competitors to gather up a decent amount of checkpoints on both the run and bike stages.

Very few early finishers arrived back, everyone wanting to use the full time allocated or perhaps having gone overtime because they were simply enjoying the sunshine and views!  One thing was for sure, it was tough but the wonderful weather ensured competitors were all grinning when they downloaded – fun was most definitely had!

The next Tri-Adventure events will be on the 16th June & 21st July – all hosted in Effingham, nr Guildford – for more info visit: www.triadventure.co.uk/next-race
