Royal Wootton Bassett Tri - 2016
Royal Wootton Bassett Tri – 2016

Four RRRs travelled to Royal Wootton Bassett in Wiltshire to take part in the Sprint Triathlon last weekend. The triathlon consisted of a 400m swim, 20km bike and a final 5k run. Conditions were perfect with lots of sunshine and a gentle breeze making the cycle ride hard but enjoyable through the beautiful countryside. Fastest time for Romsey with a PB and 2nd in his age category was Derek Kelly in a time of 1:27:04 , (9:04 swim, 44:55 bike, 30:31 run). Next was Alice Lane, 8th in age category also with a PB of 1:30:17 (9:18 swim, 51:24 bike, 25:49 run) followed by Liz Slade, 2nd in age category in a time of 1:37:41 (13:17 swim, 52:46 bike, 27:19 run) and finally Julia Abab achieving a PB and 1st in age category, in a time of 1:40:58 (13:40 swim, 56:09 bike, 27:28 run).

In the third RR10 race of the season (which is the second one that Romsey were allowed to run in due to the new “drop out” system this season) a small but hardy group braved the elements to run 7.5km at Wilverley. Those that came out were rewarded with glorious sunshine, a bit of mud and quite a few hills! The men’s team finished 5th which is higher than was achieved in any race last season, whilst the ladies managed two teams coming in 10th and 20th.
