Fantastic day of racing for Race 1 of the Kayak HQ Multisport Triathlon and Duathlon!
After a couple of days of torrential rain we were lucky enough to have perfect conditions (apart from a bit of mud!) and a great turnout of competitors – some regular faces, some young and “not so” young, and also new faces, including 1 competitor who travelled from Greymouth to get in some practice for the Coast to Coast!
Competition in all 4 events was close-
– Short Course Multisport –
Bailey O’Malley overall & Male winner,
Team Stratcons – female winners
– Long Course Multisport
Danial Bremner overall and Male winner
Sandra Hylop – Female winner
– Short Course Duathlon
Trent Lohmann – Male Winner
Vetti Fawcett – Female Winner
Headless Chickens – Overall and Team Winners
– Long Course Duathlon
Chris Sharland – Overall and Male Winner
Carys Coleman – Female Winner
Thanks to everyone for making the day such a success and to the volunteers & Committee who helped with the pre planning, race day setup, marshalling, registration, timekeeping bbq etc. Without people to do these jobs the event couldn’t happen.
Also a huge thank you to our sponsors – Major sponsor Kayak HQ, plus Proper Crisps, Chia Sisters, Richmond Aquatic Centre
