SEVERAL inches of snow could not stop some excellent performances from Rugby Triathlon Club members at the first Wellingborough Multi-Terrain run race on Sunday.
The best tri club performance came from Hywel Davies who was second in the 15km race.
However, the club’s ladies dominated the veteran and senior veteran categories in the 15km race. Jane Needham was the first veteran lady home, closely followed by Anne Portsmouth whilst Kate Vanloo secured first place in the senior veteran age group.
Full results: 15km - Hywel Davies 53.51, second overall; Jane Needham 1-08.49, first veteran; Anne Portsmouth, 1-12.32, second veteran; Sharon McGowan, 1-16.18; Garry Haynes 1-16.19; Kate Vanloo, 1-25.17, first senior veteran. 10km - Staci Courtney Leach, 59.47. 5km - Naomi Leugs, 31.00.
This multi-terrain and multi-distance run race (5km, 10km or 15km) is the first in a series of three races to be held in January and February and is used by many to see how well their winter triathlon training programmes are going. Club members will also be competing at the next series race on February 3.
If you are interested in taking part in triathlon, more information concerning the club’s adult and junior sections can be found at www.rugbytriathlon.org.uk.
