Wednesday 2nd saw the third of Ponteland Tri’s Go-Tri events hosted at the leisure centre. The third event proved the most popular having sold out before the day with many enquiries in the last week about whether places were still available.
A enthusiastic group from the Police took part, and it appeared to be reasonable competitive amongst the group, left is a picture of the successful participants all having enjoyed the event despite the breezy conditions up Callerton lane on the bike leg.
Ponteland Runners were able to host the event due to the great support from members of the club who volunteered to marshall. A quick note to any who took part that if you enjoy these events then we are more able to host when we get volunteers so please volunteer to help at some future go-tri if you can.
Transition was situtated out the back of the swimming pool allowing participants a very quick route to the bikes, after the 300m swim they completed a 2 lap, 10k bike route and then a 2.2k run around the rugby pitches.
Ponteland Tri had six club members entered in the event, the first home was Matty Bell shown left.
