A fantastic weekend for A&T at various tri events!
Alex and Colin took on Capesthorne Sprint Tri (750m/26k/5k). Alex won the event for the 2nd year running with a fantastic time of 1.15.30. Colin came in not far behind in 8th place with a time of 1.27.11 and took first place for his age group.
Meanwhile, Helen Minshull, also at Capesthorne, took part in her first Olympic Tri event (1500m/39k/10k) and finished in 3.14 taking first place in her age group. Well done Helen!
Over in Wales, Jon Hyde, Mike Reason and Terry Hughes were competing in the Bala Middle Distance, Half Ironman event with a grueling 2k swim, 76.5k bike and 20k run. Mike came in with a cracking time of 4.38 with Terry coming in strongly behind at 5.08 and Jon just behind with 5.13. Brilliant results from everyone there, looks like all the hardcore weekend training had paid off! Mike and Terry just need to double this on 22nd July!!
Closer to home Paul Jackson and Craig braved the murky sea waters of Blackpool in a 1 mile swim event but once again (at least for Craig) were called in from the water mid event due to strong winds and tides making it unsafe. Apparently Paul and Craig were both gutted that the race was cancelled midway but were cheered up by a ride on a jet ski through a family of seals back to the shore!
Well done everyone involved, you've done A&T proud this weekend!
