50th Triathlon

Today’s Capernwray sprint will be my 50th triathlon! I had planned for it to be Ironman UK, but the cancellation of the first Capernwray sprint and the conversion of Epicman into a duathlon meant that IMUK turned out to be my 48th.

Here are my triathlons in stats:


11 Sprint distance races
15 Olympic Distance
18 Half Ironman
6 Ironman


2 DNFs (did not finish) Vitruvian 2007 (illness), Beaver 2012 (injury)

1 puncture: massive tyre blow out as I arrived in T2, Bala 2011

Forgot cycle shoes once: Grendon 2006, luckily it was a sprint

0 crashes, but a few close shaves

1 time penalty for not wearing a race number on my back: Southport 2016

3 sea swims, 3 river swims 44 lake swims


Total swim distance: 88km
