Triathlon Wheelers Weekend Roundup

Pip MooreNews, Running, Swimming, Triathlon

The weekend events started on Friday evening with the fun and friendly but highly competitive Go Tri Aquathlon.  This was a 140m swim in the Moreton Hall Health club outdoor pool, followed by a 1.7km run round 10 Acre Field for all competitors, young and not so young.  The event was well supported and the damp conditions didn’t deter spirits.  The field was mainly youngsters and there was plenty of family and friendly rivalry to discuss over a beer and BBQ afterwards.  The event saw many personal victories but a masterclass in swimming from Myles Turner gave him a great start to overall victory in a time of 7mins

Many of our youngsters were in action again at the Walden junior triathlon, Safron Walden.  19 in all took on the technical and deceptively oscillating course, made more demanding with a strong breeze. Again, all our juniors performed admirably with the pick of the bunch coming from Ella Stewart claiming a superb 2nd place podium in her first full triathlon.
