An AMAZING turnout this morning for the legend known only as the ELT Hill Challenge. It may have been a little cool but the competition was feisty and in good spirit.
We arrived 09:00 at the Tea Hut for schedule and briefing were I quickly realised I should have taken a bigger piece of paper as 27 (yes, twenty seven) awesome East London Triathletes rocked up ready for battle. Each blasted up Mott Street in 30sec intervals for a 2km brutal but beautiful climb.
After a quick change a we had a gentle jog to the bottom of Church Road, a quick photo and then the mass start. A 1.2k sprint up a 39m elevation was certainly a way to build an appetite! Warm clothes donned and then off to the Bikers Hut for well deserved hot food and drink.
A BIG thank you to organisers, supporters and all who took part. Awesome.
