The Formark Hall Triathlon is set set in the beautiful grounds of Foremark Hall. The Georgian Manor house is home to the Repton Preparatory School.
This is the third year of the Foremark triathlon and is aimed at both novice competitors and more experienced athletes. This is an ideal event for those competitors looking at completing their first triathlon, for the more experienced competitors the event should prove to be a very quick course.
You can enter as an individual and complete all three disciplines on your own or consider the relay event with friends or colleagues.

    Great photos Sian, thanks for taking them. We'll need a different photograper at the Etwall one ;-)

    July 24, 2013

    • Craig

      Blimey that's loads of cycling, you'll be more than ready, especially now the new bike's on order :-)

      July 25, 2013

    • Sharon B.

      Do they allow e-bikes for the triathlon ?

      July 25, 2013

    Hi all, can someone confirm that the slide show works properly please? I just tried it and it locked my PC up! (Think it was my flaky Broadband trying to load/sort out 59 slides!). Thanks guys....

    July 23, 2013

    • Simon B.

      worked for me, must be yer cable

      July 23, 2013

    • Chris

      Thanks Simon, Sue also confirmed it's ok. So it's my steam powered B/band. I'll try viewing them one by one - should take me the best part of a day! :-)

  • Sian

    Internet very slow at moment, so will upload more photos later.... not many good ones as you wouldn't stay still! ;-)

    I spoke to a work colleague at the triathlon, she was there to support a friend's first event

    July 23, 2013

    • Sharon B.

      Sorry sent before id finished- I knew that Lyn herself did some events but found out her last team triathlon involved her doing a 105k bike ride ! Her friend then ran a marathon ! Serious stuff and way out of my league !

      July 23, 2013

  • Craig

    178th, not bad considering how much pool water I was carrying around inside me. I did manage not to wee in it too, so also pleased about that. The team did well, are you going to do all of the Etwall one Sharon?

    July 15, 2013

    • Craig

      Well done Barrie, great result. Really pleased that Sian and Sharon have entered. We'll have to have a post race party this time. Hopefully Simon has booked himself in for swimming lessons.

      July 16, 2013

    • Sharon B.

      Er not actually entered yet but only due to 12 hr shifts/ puncture etc not had time yet !

      July 16, 2013

  • Rob

    Well the results are in.. http://www.stuweb.co.uk/race/q1/#63
    .. I was 14th from last!!

    Congratulations to everyone else for a storming effort.

    July 15, 2013

    • Craig

      In fairness Rob, the only thing that let you down was the run, your other times are really respectable.

      July 15, 2013

    • Rob

      Yeah true that. I just had nothing left at the end. ..

      July 16, 2013

  • Sian

    In a moment of total madness I have signed up to take part in the Derby one!! What have I done? Not swum for several years, dread to think when I last rode a bike and I can't run!

    1 · July 15, 2013

    • Craig

      Nice one Sian, you'll love it :-)

      July 15, 2013

    • Barrie

      July 16, 2013

  • Barrie

    yeah great day well done everyone, now lets do it all again in September!!

    July 14, 2013

  • Craig

    Great day and great effort by everybody. If only more members were as brave and determined as Rob. Very impressive. Thanks also to the supporters, you do make it more enjoyable and slightly easier. Thanks Barrie for introducing me to the world of sprint triathlons. Can't wait for the Etwall one.

  • Sharon B.

    Really enjoyed it, thanks to everyone, great weather and atmosphere, had a nice ride home via the dragon at Willington, dont think the peroni was a good idea though !

    July 13, 2013

    • Rob

      Yes of course. Several doing that.

      July 13, 2013

  • Sharon B.

    July 11, 2013

    • Simon B.

      yep, 8:15 start of swim, so I'll be getting there for registration and the breifing at 7:45

      July 13, 2013

    • Rob

      Meh. 7.45... thats gonna hurt....

      July 13, 2013

  • Sharon B.

    I still cant find my name on the starting list !

    July 11, 2013

    • Simon B.

      July 13, 2013

  • Barrie

    Good Luck to all the Triathletes for Sunday and thank you to all the supporters for taking the time to come along.
    Sian will be your contact for Sunday you all should have got our contact numbers via email.
    looking forward to seeing you at the Pasta Party tonight! x

    July 12, 2013

    • Craig

      Nice one Barrie, you're an inspiration to us all ;-)

      1 · July 13, 2013

  • Craig

    Barrie you were so close to being 007

    July 11, 2013

    • Barrie

      yeah but 006 is one up on Bond!

      July 12, 2013

  • Barrie

    I think i'm the first start tome at 8.00 am! my race number is "006" if your looking out for me but I won't be wearing this on the swim!

    Normally on a meetup I would give my phone number out before the event, but i won't be able to answer it while I'm competing, so does one of the supporters wan't to give a number out so you can find each other?

    July 11, 2013

  • Rob

    My start time is 8.30. I suggested id swim in 1hr 10 mins. I think I might be faster than that.

    July 11, 2013

  • Simon B.

    team derby soc start time 8:15

      July 9, 2013

      only a few hours after the curry that ;)

      July 9, 2013

  • Rob

    Is anyone gonna sign up for the Derby Triathalon for September? http://www.punishingevents.com/derby_triathlon.htm

    July 9, 2013

    • Craig

      I'm going to enter that one to Rob.

      July 9, 2013

  • Chetna

    SOunds good but I don't think I am physically that fit, have fun thuogh :)

    July 9, 2013

  • Rob

    never done a triathlon before.. here's some advice.. http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/cms/article-detail.asp?articleid=360

    July 9, 2013

    • Rob

      obviously, follow at your own caution, I can't vouch for any of it.

      July 9, 2013

  • Sharon B.

    Ive been for a swim, instructor at Breadsall told me its 38 lengths of their pool to do 400m, it took me 15 mins, think il be in the slow group !

    June 24, 2013

    • Sharon B.

      Yes Breadsall pool is very small so its 38 of their pool lengths to do 400m !

      July 8, 2013

    • Rob

      must be tiny... looks nice in the pictures online though..

      July 9, 2013

  • Craig

    Got my start time: 09:06. Think I'd better sleep in my kit so I don't have to get up too early.

    July 8, 2013

  • Rob

    I probably should be doing something more than drinking heavily this week in prep for this, right? With the beer festival meetup on Friday, I'm not sure I will have dried out in time for Sunday's early start....

    July 8, 2013

  • Barrie

    I thought we could maybe do a pasta party the Saturday before the Triathlon or maybe a curry? What do you think?

    July 2, 2013

    • Sharon B.

      Yes pasta will be good especially when I am going to be doing such a long swim !

      July 5, 2013

    • Simon B.

      curry, especially as sharon is doing such a long swim :)

      1 · July 5, 2013

  • Sharon B.

    Yes that would be a good idea, maybe pasta better or something after the triathlon, the boot inn at repton very good.

    1 · July 3, 2013

  • Rob

    very tempted by this... I think it may precipitate my early death.

    July 1, 2013

    • Rob

      I've registered for the event..
      This is a really bad idea... but I'll give it a go.

      July 2, 2013

    • Craig

      Nice one Rob.

      July 2, 2013

  • Craig

    That's me entered. Come on people, plenty of you are capable of doing this, one day you won't be, so make the most of it!
