St Annes Triathlon

Sunday 21st May saw St Annes Promenade close to traffic allowing the 10th St Annes Triathlon to take place. A brilliant event with over 600 adults and 100 children taking part. The Grand had 5 members of the team taking part: Mandy Webb, Derrick Holland, Luca Ceriani, Sam Webb & Tom Webb.

The Adults Triathlon consited of a 400m swim in St Annes pool, a 20km bike circuit along St Annes Promenade followed by a 5km run around Fairheaven Lake and back. Organisers of the event provided a fantastic chip timing system whereby athletes began in waves depending on their predicted swim times, allowing plenty of space in the pool to avoid any crashes. Check points recorded each athletes split times for the three sections of the race.
