BLOC Steyning Triathlon: Sunday 1st May 2011 – Steyning, West Sussex

This was the 8th staging of Raw Energy Pursuits Steyning Triathlon which incorporated a Standard distance (800m-35k-8k) and the Sprint distance (400m-18.5k-4.6k) race. Apart from a north east wind, conditions were perfect for racing through the small market town and around the South Downs National Park. Fastest swim in the standard race was Tri UK's Gary Kurth (10:51) and Steyning AC's Moira Amess (13:16). However, it was eventual winner Patrick Brown from Met Police Tri who clocked the fastest bike (52:41) and third fastest run (29:31) to win the race in 1:36:14, over four minutes ahead of Anthony Gritton from David Lloyd Southampton and third place Noel Miles from East Grinstead. Despite Tri Purbecks Fran Bungay setting the fastest cycle in the women's race (1:01:25); it was Team Raw Energy's Trish Deykin who won the race by 30 seconds from Bungay with third place going to Amess.

Racing was much closer in the Sprint race with Guy Hutchings from Hurstpierpoint College ploughing through the water in 5:23 with top females Polly Mosley (Tuff Fitty Tri) and Toni Thomas (Bodyworks XTC) beating all but three men in a shade over six minutes. The strength of overall winner, Tuff Fitty's Christian Faires eventually showed as he clocked the fastest cycle and run legs to win in 52:55; 17 seconds ahead of team mate Dominic Chapman with Mid Sussex Tri's David Jones who took third. Frederique Sumption from Greenwich Tritons was the eventual winner of the women's race despite an impressive run (6th overall) by second place Polly Mosley - Toni Thomas was third.
