Need inspiration for 2015? Enter the London League triathlon races
Serpentine came fifth in the London League this year. To score higher in 2015, we need more participation from you.
In 2014, the Serpentine ended the triathlon season with a good result at the Jekyll and Hyde Duathlon in October, coming fifth in the overall London League ranking out of 60 London clubs.
For the mob match, we finished third behind London Fields and Crystal Palace. Some 93 people participated in the eight races. However, that makes barely 5% of the total membership of our club. To score higher in the coming season, we need more of your involvement.
All you need to do is enter any of the races listed below as a Serpentine club member and enjoy your day. You will have the opportunity to race with other Serpies as well as some support from the League Captains.
Join the 5%: do triathlon
For the 2015 season, we would like to extend our invitation to members in the triathlon squads, as well as those who might want to discover the triathlete in them, to participate in the London League.
It doesn't matter what your pace if you can swim, bike and run, you can still score for the mob match. There are months to go before the start of the league, so there is time to train.
Last season’s winners
To keep you inspired, here is the list of winners in the age group category last season:
- Margaret Sills - 1st overall in age group
- Harriet Hughes - 2nd overall in age group
- William McAvock - 2nd overall in age group
- Lan O'Connor - 3rd overall in age group

Last season, a few of us did the races as first-time triathletes. This year, it could be you.
The 2015 campaign will be captained by Aga Wicinska and Salina Christmas. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have about the league. We shall keep you informed about race entries and provide support on the race day.
