Alnwick Tri – Sunday 17th May

Alnwick Tri put on a great event again this year but the weather conditions were extremely windy as the competitors headed out towards the coast on the bike.  It was quick heading east but everyone knew we’d pay the price when we turned to head back towards the town.  The run route was slightly changed this year to accommodate building work but had the usual off-road up-hill format.

Well done to Phil for his first triathlon,  great result.  Also great to see Tina and Kelly competing as they were volunteering at Ashington a couple of weeks ago and cheering all Ponteland Tri members on in the run leg. Ponteland Tri had 10 participants in the event this year out of the field of 180.  Just need to make sure all club members register against the “Ponteland Tri” club name when entering BTF events.

Our thanks go to Alnwick Tri club and all the volunteers who made such excellent event.  I will add some event photos once available.

Here’s Kelly on the run, she does need a nice “Ponteland Tri” suit for future events….. much better than plain black.
