Go-Tri Ponteland 22nd July

Great weather set the scene for the next go-tri event hosted by the club. The volunteer marshalls were excellent and a credit to the club. This event had great participation from club members ( 11 of the 28 participants were club members ) so between the participants and the marshalls it was great to see so many of the club around enjoying the evening. The event was a good combination of club members who are active triathletes having a training session along with many others just experiencing the fun of a multi-sport event.

Kelly was first out the pool, first out of transition, and so it continued, she was really enjoying herself trying to stay ahead of everyone.

The top end of the field was very competitive with first for both the mens and ladies race going to club members, Matty Bell and Nicola Conlon. Positions 3 – 6 all finished within 15 seconds so a very close finish for Martin Lloyd, Stephen Craig, Tom Fullen and James Leiper. Well done all. Best transition goes to Chris Kenyon for falling over backwards whilst trying to put his trainers on.  Wish we had a picture of that…..

Well done all and don’t forget we have a aquabike event in August that should be great fun. Results shown below.
