Eggesford Triathalon - 7th Feb 15

4 members from EC (including 1 Brother) took part in Eggesford PC Triathalon on 7th Feb 15.

Kensa Benallick, who has had a long break from Triathalons, due to an injury, came back in full fitness and had a great day!

Hattie Drake and her brother Will, both did amazing in the swim phase.  Will was in a mixed team which came 2nd and seeing as this was his first Triathalon, he is definitely one to watch for the future.

Charlotte Hicks had a personal best in both the run and swim phase and also had the best shoot in the junior girls.  She was awarded 2nd place individually and has qualified for the National Triathalon in March.

Don't forget to get booked up to support our own Triathalon being held at Lux Park on 7th March!

South Pool Team Show Jumping

East Cornwall certainly pulled out all the stops at South Devon West Open Team Show Jumping on 25th January 2015.  We entered 2 teams:

The Pirates - Phoebe Frost, Flo Wickham, Katie Martin and Shakira Duffy  

The Tinminers - Katie & Amy Flanagan and Abi and Evie Baker..  

16 teams entered and only 5 finished on zero faults, including both EC teams!  The second round was timed and the Pirates just pipped the Tinminers by 2 seconds.  Amazing result with the Pirates coming 2nd and the Tinminers coming 3rd.  Some great riding and fantastic team spirit.  

The next Team Show Jumping event is our own, being held on 22nd  March at Duchy College.  We have a calls for everyone, starting the day with a mini class for our juniors at 1ft6.  The children can be assisted in this class so a great way for them to have a go on home turf.  Keep an eye on the website for the schedule and booking details!

Cotley Triathalon

Four members from ECHPC travelled up to Wellington for the Cotley Triathalon.

Isabell and Millie competed in the mixed mini class of 8 & 9 year olds.  Both girls did a great shoot, especially Isabell who has gained some great tips from Paul at shoot training and has improved greatly.  Both girls had a good swim and Mille did a great run.

Max has been a consistent scorer through all phases and was placed 5th individually and 1st in a mixed team.

Phoebe was in a very strong class of mini girls.  She also had a good shoot and swam over 4 lengths, only missing a top 6 place by a few points.

Well done to all!

There is an extra Tri/Biathalon in January being run by Devon and Somerset PC on 11th January.  This is now bookable on the events page and entries close before Christmas, so don't forget to book asap.
