I did an Olympic-distance triathlon relay at the weekend in Grafham and really enjoyed it. They were nice people who did a good job of organising and the weather was lovely.
I was in what appeared to be the only all-female relay team doing the Olympic distance there (there was also a "Grafman" half-iron option, but that distance wouldn't have been the best choice for a first triathlon). I got my left foot stuck in the sand during warm-up - oops! - and it got cramp six strokes into the first leg. Unsurprisingly, nearly everyone passed me, but I picked up a bit of speed in the last leg-and-a-half (after sorting out the cramp) and passed a few people. I got the somewhat disappointing time of 41 minutes for my 1.5 km swim, but at least I can see where I need to improve next time.
My team-mates, despite being fellow triathlon rookies, fared rather better and we finished in a total time of just over 3 hours. 5th (and last) out of the relay teams, but that can be worked on. We were 120th out of an entry of 151, and I'm mostly just proud that my team-mates and I managed to finish.
Did anyone else on here go to Grafham, and if so, how did the event go for them?
