Newbiggin Sprint Triathlon – Sunday 31st August

VO2maxRacing Events hosted a great event in Newbiggin yesterday with 4 participants from Ponteland Tri,  David Levison, Matty Bell, Dave Legg and Sue Heppell all braved the cold sea water around 09:30 in the morning.  A Northumbrian Pipe Band led the particpants around to the beach start where a hooter started the run into the sea.  The weather was steadily improving all morning with warm sunshine on the run leg by the end of the event.

All looked relaxed prior to the walk round and the opportunity to “warm up” in the cold sea prior to the race.  The mass start is great to watch and many of the local residents come out to support the race providing a great atmosphere for the day.  A great finish by one of the last competitors who’d taken the opportunity to stop for a pint on the run leg prior to the finish line.  A “relaxed” triathlon for him…..
