Haven Point Sprint Triathlon – 10th August 2014

Just three Ponteland Tri members took part in what was an extremely well organised event by the Fire Brigade on Sunday 10th August.  The weather forecast had been for heavy rain but on the morning the forecast moved and we had a clear morning,  although a little breezy on the coast.

Danny Kendal and Sue and Chris Heppell took part and enjoyed the pool swim in the new eight lane pool at Haven Point, and a closed road circuit for the bike leg.  The final section of the run was on the sand of the beach to add to the pain.  The event included buffet and presentations afterwards and all was completed prior to the rain in the afternoon,  perfect timing. Certainly an event to recommend to club members next year.
