Adams Harrison sponsored the Haverhill Triathlon this year in aid of the Haverhill Scouts and Guides, and so we entered three teams for the Sprint+ Relay.
We met up outside the Leisure Centre on a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning, the 4th of October, all a little nervous as none of us have ever done a triathlon before. Our teams had to do a 600m swim, 45km cycle and a 10k run. The teams were made up as follows:-
Swimming – Hayley Ford
Cycling – Andy Dedman
Running – Gillian Gilligan
Giving it a Tri:-
Swimming – Tom Pitts
Cycling – Alison Helbert
Running – Simon Gilligan
Swimming – Lois Revill
Cycling – Sharon Dyster
Running – Rebecca Dedman
All our athletes did extremely well and said that they enjoyed the day (and have even said that they will do it again next year)! The final results of our three teams were:-
1st place – Tri-Hards with a finishing time of 2:46:15
2nd place – Giving it a Tri with a finishing time of 3:01:25
3rd place – Tri-Angels with a finishing time of 3:20:47.
We met up afterwards in the Drabbit Smock for a well deserved drink where Rhodri Rees (our senior Partner) presented a trophy to the winning team.
Congratulations to all our teams, you did an amazing job!
