Mick Dicker from Raw Energy Pursuits ( reports from the L Guess Jewellers Arundel Triathlon, which took place on Sunday 30th May 2010.

L Guess Jewellers Arundel Triathlon 2010

Standard 800m.40km.10km - Sprint 400m.20km.5km

The Arundel Triathlon continues to grow with many competitors returning year after year. In the Standard race, Tri UK's Peter Younghusband was back to defend his title against late entrant and teammate Mark Tickner. The fact that Tickner made it to the start was a feat in itself as the coach forgot his shoes; goggles and then his number belt and only made the start with seconds to spare. On the course the pair were fairly evenly matched, but on the tough run to the trig point within the grounds of Arundel Castle, Ticker edged away for only his second win against his old time adversary. Thames Turbo's Lucy Bowen was the runaway winner of the women's event and looked strong throughout the race finishing an impressive ninth overall. The relatively new Chichester Westgate Tri Club dominated many of the category prizes with Sussex Police winning the Relay event.

The Sprint triathlon saw local athlete Dominic Chapman from Tuff Fitty TC retaining the title he won last year ahead of teammate Christain Faires and Paul Blackmore of Team THE. Southampton's Claire Nichols was first female, although the emergence of British Pentathlon's Polly Mosley in second place in her first triathlon should suggest she's one to watch for the future. Rory Bryan (Royal Navy) and Sandra Mowat (Bodyworks XTC) took the 40+ category with Brighton's Bob Novis and Blackheath & Bromley's Anne Cilia winning the Supervets.
