Many of my early triathlon experiences involved turning up at a gravel pit, leaning my bike on the curb and racing a covert triathlon with mates from Berkshire Tri Squad. I'm therefore surprised it's taken me so long to try and recreate this late-80s vibe in Strasbourg.
Saturday 17th June 2017
07:30 on the beach at La Ballastiere, Bischheim.
- Swim: 600m on a looped course.
- Bike: 16km on the old La Wantzenau Triathlon bike course. Stop at the Petanque Club.
- Run: Two lap 4km run from the Petanque Club. 50% tarmac, 50% gravel.
Coffee / Croissants from the back of my car.
This is not a race. It's a social swim, bike and run. Go hard if you want. Be responsible for yourself. Stay safe.
Swimming goggles. Put running shoes in jersey pockets or drop off at my car. I’ll be at La Wantzenau Petanque Club from 06:30 until 07:00.
To watch bikes in T1 and T2.
