Llangorse Big Swim and Triathlon 2015

The Crannog as we waited for the mist to rise

The Crannog as we waited for the mist to rise

Wow, what a weekend. Thank you so much to all of you for racing with a smile, marshaling with a cheery shout and, to the Llangorse people, allowing us to use your beautiful home for two days. Without the Blackham family who own the lake, Llangorse Sailing Club, Llangorse Lake users’s group, the community council, Brecon Beacons national park, Natural Resources Wales, Kirsty Williams who presented our prizes on Sunday and Ian Howie who presented our prizes on Saturday, it would not have been possible. A massive thank you to our marshal team, some of whom gave up two days to help. I hope you all enjoyed a well deserved beer!

There are so many highlights but here are just a few: the weather (once again we were blessed), the Blue Tits ladies swimming club and their wonderful costumes and joy for life, Andy who was our last swimmer out of the water after spending his birthday doing the 6km challenge, the first-timers who overcame their nerves and achieved what they didn’t think was possible, the patience of the triathletes on Sunday as we waited for the mist to rise, our amazing water safety team with their camaraderie and banter, 4-year-old Flo who helped at the church aid station, The triple King family victory and the four Llangorse lads who were still smiling at the end.

Sport should be fun and it was. Thank you all and see you in 2016
