Tri-X, a relatively new club from the South West formed a number of teams to take on the Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham on the 7 June, with their 'All Male Tribe' team of Paul Martin, Simon Tarrant and Owen Grant posting the fastest team time of the day.

"In 2018 our small new Triathlon Club located in the heart of the Cotswolds was setup and affiliated with British Triathlon - the club is called TRI-X. With such a stealth like name the club appears to be doing rather well off its 35 members and definitely punched above its weight in the recent Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham on the 7 June.
Back in January our club received an email from British Triathlon telling us about the upcoming relay event and we thought it would be fun to try and enter a team for each of the categories and make this event our showcase club event of the year. We managed to sort out what we felt was a competitive all male relay made up of our very own Swim Stig, some say he sleeps in a fish tank at night all we know is ……, Simon our bike guru who knows everything about being aero and Owen who runs like a gazelle. The rest of us went on a training camp in May (Holiday) and did our final preparations to be as good as we could be for our Tribe entry Gwyn (captain), Karl and Anne and our mixed relay entry Sheena, Tracy and Captain Pete.
The day went amazingly well with our all male team topping the charts with some impressive leg times for each athlete. Our tribe team went head to head and Karl came up tops with the best overall from the 3 of us and our Mixed relay achieved PB’s in the Swim and Run.
Following the race we re-grouped and celebrated our performances with expo refreshments and finished the day off watching how the pro’s do it. All in all a fantastic event.
We are already scouting our member pool for next years category entries, we need an all female team to give our all male team a run for the money. Rebecca Adlington if you're free?
Just finally, a big thank you to our two head coaches Anne and Gwyn Williams without them there would be no Tri-X and we appreciate all there hard work."
