And what a weekend it was with the Tri club from having a first go at triathlons to Ironman in training the club was represented well across both days with some great results. Sunday Standard results out of 278 entrants this was an optional non wetsuit swim as the water temperature had dropped.

Leeds Castle Sprint & Standard Triathlon

Event: Leeds Castle Sprint & Standard Triathlon
Date: 25-26th June
