Sherborne Sprint Triathlon
Sunday 5th July saw us host our annual Triathlon, and as promised, this years event was better than ever! 100 competitors battled their way through 20 lengths of our warm waters, nearly 13 miles of undulating countryside and topped that off with a further 5 kilometres on foot, through to our finish line with a mixture of blood, sweat and gears.
As is often the case with our annual Triathlon, this year saw a number of athletes set personal bests with many competing in their first ever event.
Congratulations to Joel Knight who stormed home in a winning time of 1:03:57 – our second fastest of all time! And Louise Wallis who recorded the fastest time of 1:20:10 in the women’s race.
A big thank you must go to all the marshals who helped out on the day as well as this year’s sponsors, The Hub, Hamptons International and the Eastbury Hotel. As usual, the success of these events would be non existent without you.
Our annual Triathlons are an ideal event for athletes of all abilities, young and old, experienced tri-athletes to complete newcomers. With beginner friendly sprint distances, a technically challenging bike route, chip timing and professional catering from ‘The Hub’ we ensure that whether you’re a pro or give-it-a-goer, our Tri has something for everyone.
Plans are already well under way for next years event, so if you missed out on this one, get yourself in condition for July 2016! More details to come…
