Dear all at UK Triathlon,
Now that the dust has settled on the UK Ultimate, I’d justlike to thank everyone for a fantastic race. It was a real privilege to race ina safe and supportive environment, with enthusiastic marshals, loud spectatorsand a wonderful sense of achievement and camaraderie throughout. Great stuff atthe feed stations, a lovely touch to have names on race numbers which allowed atouching degree of personal support, and I would have happily gone down onbended knee and proposed marriage to the nice lady handing out the rubber bandson the run laps – but probably not made it back up onto my feet again…
Having had a couple of days to beginrecovering from the ultimate i just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks forputting on a great event at the weekend.
The venue was perfect and the marshallsand volunteers were all superb...
