On Behalf of the BQA, I Just wanted to say a Huge Thank You ‘Chester Tri’ for yet another amazing ‘Deva Divas Quadrathlon … and still the only Ladies Quad in the World! We certainly shared ‘The Quad Passion’ we had 44 ladies on the start line, at least 25 of them first timers, plus a team of 10 from ‘Norwich Canoe Club’, and our own wonderful special ‘Chester Canoe Club Quad Team’! The atmosphere was brilliant the camaraderie and racing superb, these girls just had the Best day Ever!
A massive thank you to my Triathlon club ‘Chester’, and to Race director ‘Sally Napthen’ for letting us add the Quad to the Deva’s Tri for the 3rd time! We owe the success of this race to the amazing organization team, to all those who prepared the race venue, the course, the safety and the technical team, all marshals across 4 disciplines, Chester Canoe Club, the cake makers, commentators ‘with wonderful banter’, and the list goes on and on! THANK-YOU!
We couldn’t have this race without the competitors, so thank-you to all you Deva Quadrathletes for giving it your all, you pushed hard, smiled all the way, you were amazing, and make our race so very special. It means so much to Sally Napthen myself and all the Chester team, when we saw those Big Smiles throughout the race it’s been another memorable Day! I have had so many lovely messages from you all, its been a great pleasure and an honor to be part of YOUR journey.
Certainly makes me realise why I love being involved in these wonderful races, its so good to see athletes of all standards achieving their goals, the smiles, the hugs and the tears on the finish line, I was so proud putting medals around their necks, wear your T’shirts with pride and I hope to see you all next Year!
Congratulations to all our Quadrathletes, and Age Group Prize Winners but a special mention to our Overall Winners!
