Calorie burning sporting challenges!

| |

If you have been overindulging during the holidays, here are a couple of ideas to help burn off those calories.

Marlow Half Marathon takes place on 7th November 2010 at 9.30am. The event is organised by Marlow Striders, starting and finishing at Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School.

Rowers Revenge Triathlon on 3rd October 2010 is the 16th year of the event.  Starting and finishing in Higginson Park, the first part of the race is a 4000 metre row on Ergo rowing machines (see picture), which is then followed by a 23km bike ride and then a  7.5km run.

Individual and team entries are possible (one person does each leg of the triathlon), and prizes in male and female categories in Junior, 20+, 30+, 40+, 50+ and mens 60+.

I took part in this event for the first time last year, and found it great fun and a good challenge.  I will be back for more this year!

Also, a bit of advance notice… races being organised by F3 Events for next year on the 17th July 2011:

  • The 2nd Marlow River Sprint Triathlon
  • The 1st Marlow River Olympic Distance Triathlon

Start your training now!
