Wednesday the 4th April marked the return of the Scunthorpe Triathlon clubs Summer series.
Having had to have a last minute change of venue, due to potholes and road works, we hope for a lovely evening and the sun would shine down on all those who turned out. How wrong could we be, the heavens opened, the wind picked up, yet 42 people still signed on the dotted line to take part.
Our Time keepers and marshal turned out on mass to support the athletes and watch in amazement as they battled the conditions with the much heard “they must be mad” comment uttered under their breaths.
The training race started with a 1 mile run then an 11 mile ride (new route) with a 1 mile run to finish
The first training race is usually an indication of how good a Winters training the athletes have had, and from the results it looks like some of the Ladies and Gents are going to be on fire this year.
Jon Frary taking the win in the Men’s competition (even after forgetting to take his trainers off before trying to get into his cycle shoes) and Vicky Wilson just edging the win for the Ladies.
