It was great to get back to an almost full National Trophy Series this year. Sadly Bude had to be cancelled, due to major leak with no water in the Canal, but we still had 4 excellent races in our calender, The Brigg Bomber (World Cup Event also) Dearne Valley Sprint, Shrewsbury Sprint, and The Brigg Sprint. I’d just like to thank on behalf of the BQA to all our Race organizers and support volunteers, who work so hard each year to put on these events for us, it is a big commitment and we really do appreciate your time! Thanks also to all the Sponsors who support them, and to you the BQA Members for you annual fees, which are vital so we can run the BQA Governing Body and more important provide the ever important Insurance fees to be able to support the Race Organizers…. Big Thanks!
This year we had we had 34 male athletes and 23 female athletes racing in the series, but only 3 athletes managed to do all 4 races ….. a huge well done to John McAdam, Wayne Smith and Helen Adams. It has been a difficult season for many of us, with Covid still hovering and other life issues, but lets hope 2023 will bring a fresh start, plenty of motivation and lots more of Quadrathletes back in ACTION!!
Well done to all Quadrathletes that raced in the series, there have been some excellent performances and big improvements for may athletes this season, its been great to see some old faces back into our sport and as always so good to be welcoming newcomers, we hope to see you all again next year!

Jules has made a come back to Quadrathlon after pursuing other sports, I’ve know him since 2000, when I was fairly new to our sport we had many a great trip to Europe competing in World Championship Events. Other commitments took over Jules life and he moved on to other challenges. I am so pleased Jules has made a come back, he’ll be a great asset to our Quad family, enthuiastic, fun and as I remember always smiling … a fabulous result in his come back year!
Helen has being doing Quads for a couple of years now, and has just got stronger and stronger each year, a well deserved result and she is one of only 3 athletes to do all of our 4 Quads this year! Helen is also a great ambassador for Quadrathlon, and she enjoys sharing her passion with other like minded athletes along the way and will no doubt be supporting our sport for years to come … a great result well done!
Congratulations also to our Age Group Winners who have all produced some fabulous results this season! We have great depth in strength and experience in our age groupers, they are all great ambassadors of our sport and we are very proud to have them in our BQA Quadrathlon Family! Well Done to you all!
