Link to a new Tri Magazine:
I wanted to let you know about Different Perspective - a totally new and FREE triathlon magazine. I am a pro triathlon photographer and get a bit sad that the magazines only have space for a few photos from each race. I have therefore created this DIGITAL magazine to showcase my work.
The first issue covers 5 races including The Outlaw and is available from https://www.joomag.com/magazine/mag/0796839001382187128/p1 Everyone can take out a FREE subscription to the magazine and be informed when the next one is available to view. The magazine is only going to get better with each edition and the 2nd and 3rd and well into production:-
Issue 2 - Dedicated to Ironman Wales with 5 interviews including Lucy Gossage. Published 1st November
Issue 3 - Exclusive photos from the ITU World Championship, interviews with David McNamee and Luis Rosindale and their Airsteem bikes, Master swimming championship in Sheffield and much more. Published 1st January
Could you please let all your Tri club members know about the magazine. They do not have to give any personal details and it is totally FREE. The higher the subscriber base I get the more races I can cover internationally. If you could email, twitter and Facebook about it to everyone I would be really grateful.
If you host your own race there will be a race directory at the back of the magazine from issue 3 which costs just £25 per issue (6 per year). Please contact me to book your spot.
Many thanks and I hope your club has had as a successful one as mine (Maidstone Harriers) this year

Great racing at the Lions events in Bexhill yesterday. Emma Faulkner & birthday boy David Palmer raced the Classic Distance Duathlon. (4km Run 40km Bike 10km Run) Emma was in 1st place after the bike but was just pipped to the win to come home 2nd lady overall! Dave put in a strong performance spurred on by the thought of birthday beers at the end!
Next up was Tamsin Mowbray & Tom Brampton in the Standard Distance Tri. A deceptive current made the swim tough but both had great races, Tamsin gaining a 2nd in her Age Group.
Ben Evett (in his 1st ever Sprint Distance Tri) had a good solid race. Ben found the swim leg hard & undoubtedly learned a huge amount to take forward to his next one. Adrian Collins also raced the Sprint & judging by the way he came over the line had given it his all! Very well done to all & thanks to supporters & Mike Stokes for all the photos.

Simon Casebourne has kindly offered to take next Weds session (April 17th). He has suggested a cycle training session at 6:15 meet at the bottom of Galley Hill, to go straight into the running session at 7pm so triathletes get a brick set & some guidance on bike technique.
He will do this every 3rd Weds of the month if all goes well.
DON'T FORGET BIKE LOCKS ARE A MUST while doing run session & lights may be needed if cycling home afterwards.
