This event could not have happened without the huge support of all those who planned, organised and delivered the event, so a huge thank you to everyone who helped. A few specific call outs to Martin Bragg, Tara Truman and Annette Keevil (our area leads) and our sponsors; The Pulse (thanks to Ange and team for the swimming, pool, spin room and help on the day), Emsea (our amazing medals and trophies supplier) and Sainsbury’s (the snacks).
This event was so successful we may even do it again next year!
Congratulations to club member Fred Yearsley who has just won Gold in the European Triathlon Union Long Course championship for his age group – in an amazing time of 11h 51m – over an hour faster than the second placed competitor. Well done Fred!
