On Sunday the 31st of April we took 20 athletes to Calne for the BUCS sprint triathlon which was EUTriC’s biggest turn out yet for this event! After what was a rather early start ( many members of EUTriC had not seen the hours of 6am for quite some time) we arrived at Calne in good time where Charlotte was the first race, finishing in a very respectable time of 1:37:05. Our next wave of athletes include Grace, Molly and Becca who all raced fantastically and were happy to have completed their first ever triathlon. Overall the girls did brilliantly; special mention goes to Ellen P-K who finished in 1:24:51, placing her 50th overall. Emily Brunel was happy to get a PB in a time of 1:28:37, closely followed by third fasted girl Isabel Cole in 1:29:56 and Alice Carr in 1:31:05.
On the boys side we also had several competing in their first ever triathlon including Simon Jones ( 1:22:33), Brian Tai (1:23:48), Alan Truman (1:34:39), Callum Aldous (1:18:35) and Andrew Cox (1:34:49). Quang, Pierre and Morgan also put in a strong performances (Morgan matching Emily with a new PB!). Continuing his success from the Donut Duathlon was Tim Gordon, who was our fastest male, coming 62nd in a time of 1:11:10. Despite a long period of injury Harry Preston was still our second fastest male finishing in 1:13:25, he was followed by Finn Arentz in 1:16:23 (still recovering from the London marathon!) and Alex Foyn in 1:16:32.
A fantastic day was had by all and special mentions go to Kevin for supporting and the boys for doing a great job at creative tent construction!
