Whilst others in the club were pounding roads in Half marathons this weekend, Richard Pitts was in London having managed to get a place in the open Sprint Triathlon Event at the Pruhealth ITU World Triathlon Series.
Richard started with a steady swim completing the 750 meter swim in around 01:46 per 100m, moving onto the bike Pitts then averaged around 21mph over the 14 mile course, he finished strongly with a sub 20 minute 5K run. He was rewarded for his efforts with 9th in the 45 plus age category and he was 82nd overall.Transitions look a bit tardy but guessing it's a big event and a lot of ground to cover before even considering change over. Super result.
