The Total Motion Aquathlon
The Total Motion Aquathlon returned to the iconic Tooting Bec Lido, the largest freshwater swimming pool in the UK, on Saturday 19th May 2018 for this increasingly popular event. Having successfully made it's debut in the BTF VonCrank Senior League in 2017 we were proud to be a fixture once again for 2018.
On the day we were fortunate to have fantastic weather however the water still remained a chilly 16 degrees following a few cold evenings prior. The first competitor got underway at 10:00am with continuous waves following until 10.35am and we saw some impressive swimming across the 810m.
This was followed by a very warm 7.3km run around Tooting Common but this didn't seem to slow our competitors down, again producing some very quick times.
The London Tri Clubs were out in force with a 1-2 from Ful-on-Tri and 6 Clapham Chasers making the overall top 10! Well done to Haukur Heimisson (Ful-on-Tri) and Katie Curd (Tri London) who took home male and female first place. It was also a triumph for many first-timers who enjoyed the open-water feel of the swim within the safety of the lido.
Special thanks to our event partners The Clapham Chasers Running & Triathlon Club, Body Logic Health, Voncrank, Sundried, Swim For Tri, Swans UK and Tribe Sports who provided on the day support and contributed to the wonderful prizes and participant discounts.
Finally a big thank you to all of our volunteers who made the day possible!
See you next year...
