Triathlon Team Compete in their First Event
After many training sessions during the winter months SES Triathlon competed in their first event. On Sunday the 21st of April, in glorious sunshine, the group took part in the David Lloyd sprint triathlon around Burton Waters, Lincoln. The race consisted of a 400M swim followed by a rolling, windy 24K bike ride and a 5K run along the River Witham. The 11 athletes all completed the course in good times, they successfully mastered the transitions and came home nearly injury free. Angus Smith was positioned 4th and Marcus Widdess 5th in their age categories. Sam Widdess, the older of the 2 brothers, was close on their heels and the other boys were all finished in a further 10 minutes or less. Fiona Achurch and Natasha Bartrum were 3rd and 6th in their category. This was an excellent first effort and the next event waits! Speedy Belvoir, 9th June, Belvoir Castle.
