Athletics / Tue 25th Jun 2024 at 09:40am

HERCULES Running & Tri members compete in Austria & Portugal.

A stunning Debut in Austria for Freddie and a PB for Paul in Portugal.

Freddie Tomblin completed his first Iron Distance Event in Austria in an amazing time of 11:40:00 on Friday 15th June.

Freddie started his training last November with the hope to go sub 12 hours. Fast forward 6 months and his consistent training paid off as we are pleased to report that he smashed his goal with 20 minutes to spare.

Paul Schroder completed his 5th event representing Team GB at the European Aquathlon Championships in Coimbra, Portugal on Friday 21st June, improving his time at that distance by 52 seconds. The event was the usual format of 1k River Swim followed by 5k Run. Paul was really pleased to benchmark his improvement over the last 2 events, improving both his swimming and running times. “I would like to thank our members for the awesome support and my kit sponsor, Louisa Gatland Massage Therapy, Old Harlow, https://louisagatland.com/ who has been amazing supporting my journey over the last 5 events”.

Paul Schroder is an England Athletics & BTF Level 2 diploma Club Coach so always on hand to help and support members in their Running & Triathlon journeys, he added “we are very proud of our members recent achievements, with some amazing performances so far this year for our very young club”.
