On 31st May, the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team promoted the fourth annual 'Self-Transcendence Try at Tri'. It is a triathlon aimed at beginners, who would like to experience the challenges of a triathlon in a friendly and welcoming environment.
The weather was not ideal, with participants greeted by rain and a coolish wind blowing off the coast. Fortunately, the rain eased off once the race started, but the wet roads made the cycling leg particularly challenging.
