Results for Sri Chinmoy Tri Club's TO TRI Duathlon, Tockington Manor, 10 September 2017
34 duathletes braved a rather dodgy weather forecast to line up under grey skies at Tockington - an unfamiliar experience at this race that has so far been blessed with such amazing weather! In the event a squally shower or two didn't prove a showstopper and all starters finished in some pretty brisk times, ranging from 42 to 62 minutes - a quality field.
First to finish was Jamie Britton in an excellent time (considering the conditions) of 42.25. Race regular Tom Miller (Emersons Green RC) took third place behind runner-up Phil Partridge (Staple Hill Runners). George Britton, just a few days after turning 16, raced to an impressive 12th place overall, while fellow junior athlete Nathan Price (15) came in 19th.
The ladies' race was won once again by Yvonne Cox 47.30, with Fional Grey and Helen Parker (Kingswood Tri), separated by only 7 seconds, taking 2nd and 3rd.
Today's race was the last of the series and our club is now focussed on some international events to mark our 40th anniversary - our first race took place in the USA on 2nd October 1977. Next year we'll be back with another season of Running, Triathlon and GO TRI events around the Bristol area. Thanks to Triathon England for backing our GO TRI Events again this year. Thanks to everyone who took part this year, as athlete or helper, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2018.
Whatever you have got lined up for the winter - have a good one!
