Bastion Triathlon 2015 - Free Entry - Competition Details

Ok folks, so last year I ran a competition for an entry into the 2014 Bastion which involved predicting the distance I would cover in a T30 (30 minute) swim. Steve Berry won that competition and is back again this year after catching the iron distance triathlon bug Twisted Evil

Once again, the kind people at Castle Triathlon have put up a free entry for this year's race. Details of this year's event (on 12th July) are here:-

http://www.castletriathlonseries.co.uk/races/the-bastion-full-iron-distance/

This year, I'm not so confident I'll cover 30 minutes ( Wink ) so I've opted for a more manageable challenge of swimming a 400m TT. However, to make things more interesting, the competition will involve guessing the time differential between my 400m time and my 13 year old daughters 400m time in a head to head time trial in the pool, during morning swim practice on Wednesday 22nd April Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

In terms of details, mine and Megan's short course PB's are as follows:-

Me - 4:32.97 - date (I can't remember!) - venue - Ponds Forge

Megan - 4:37.65 - date: 20/01/2015 - venue: Barnet Copthall


In terms of other relevant detail, I'm currently training between 0hrs and 4.5hrs in the pool. Megan is averaging 12hrs a week.

So, now the detail - the objective is to guess the time differential in seconds between us. Times will be recorded to the nearest 100th of a second. In the event of two or more people guessing the correct time, then the winner will be decided by the nearest guess to my 400m time.

Entries can be either by a post on my Facebook page, my Twitter feed or on the reply to my TriTalk blog. Guesses can be either positive (if you think Megan will be faster - eg. If I swim 5 minutes and Megan swims 4:50, the time difference will be +10.00 seconds) or negative (if you think Megan will be slower eg. If I swim 4:50 and Megan swims 5:00, the time difference will be -10.00 seconds). So you need to give me a + or - time in seconds and (for matching guesses) an estimated time for my swim.

I'll keep entries open until 5:30hrs (UK time) on Wednesday 22nd April.

Good luck!

Good luck both of you. I reckon it'll be a fingertip finish with you just beating Megan by:

-00.18 seconds

With you 4 seconds slower than your pb at 4.36.97.

No letting her win now Very Happy
