The Burnham on sea sprint triathlon took place on Sunday 12th June, comprising of a 500mt pool swim 20 k cycle and 5k beach run

   6 of our athletes took part in the 25th anniversary of this event, with Mel \Williams  and Moira Woodward getting a 3.30 am call as they started their swim at 6.15 and 6.30. Like all good husbands Ray and Rob joined the early birds, though their start time were 9.00 and 10.00.

 

All had good swims, and then had to battle the very gusty winds in driving rain on a very testing course, all returned back safe to T2 to start the wet and sometimes muddy run, down the beach around the golf course and back into an ever stronger head wind to the finish. The joys of an English summer!
