Big thanks to Everything But The Cow and Vita Coco Coconut Water for their donations of post-race refreshments to our kids' race at St Saviour's C of E primary school in London, UK.

The Hollis brothers want you to know that bullying their sisters with Down Sydrome is wrong. Watch and support them end the use of the 'R' word.
Only $82 until Marcus is at 100% of his funding goal. Please help spread the word

From a sprint distance to a full Ironman - the swim presents a problem for many doing triathlons. Not only is swimming the most technique based of the sports, but it offers no resting points and can often be a spot where you are in contact with other competitors.
Have a look at some of these swimming scenarios to better prepare for your next triathlon. Share in the comments any additional tips for open water swimming that you may have
Congrats to all those who competed in the NYC Marathon this weekend. An astounding (and record breaking) 50,564 finishers. Can you relate to the marathon shuffle the day after?
