Some weekend running ‘shorts’ – results round-up


Triathletes on the run – on the track, road and cross country

With the World Triathlon Abu Dhabi postponed, the weekend saw many international athletes seeking out alternative racing options. I spotted quite a few of those – along with some past and present triathlon names – running around the world (or domestically), across a range of surfaces and distances.

Check out some of those below!

Hayden Wilde – New Zealand 5000m track champion

Richard Murray – no Abu Dhabi, so also jumped onto the track

Mario Mola – seventh in Spanish Cross Country Championships

Thank you @gateriverrun for the amazing race. Loved the live bands 🎶 I had such an amazing experience that I want to return to conquer the green monster! It got the best of me today. The race was 15k. I finished in 50 minutes and change. Super fun to see @mariellehalll take the win. I was battling it out for second with @natosha_rogers and @deejmeyer until the final climb where I didn’t have enough and ended up fourth. That concludes my mini racing tour of three races in four weeks. So fortunate to have family who travel and support my dream. And thankful for races, but also looking forward to some time at home. Traveling to the east coast from Portland is no joke. Looking forward to continuing to pound the rock back in Portland with my amazing teammates. As a side note, today I learned my great grandpa Oliver was a stone cutter. Very fitting 🙌🏻#poundtherock #stonecutter 📸 @talbotcox

Last X-Country of the winter at UK Inter Counties. Always a pleasure to throw that North East vest on and compete for the county. 5th for me yesterday. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed with the result. Would have liked to be more competitive at the front end of the race but the body just wasn’t playing ball. The last couple of weeks have taken their toll! Chuffed for the North East team and the lads for having cracking races and packing well. Happy to help the team win the title! If you’d told me back in November I would achieve what I have in my off season this winter i’d have probably laughed and told you to quit joking on. ❤️ X-Country always. Soon ⏩ Triathlon season. First one been cancelled cos of Corona… fingers crossed the next one stays on!
