North West Telegraph - - Telegraph Sport - Tay­lar Amonini

Ath­letes lim­bered up and sweated it out at the week­end as they re­turned to the triathlon sea­son.

In the third event of the sea­son, the Life and South F45 Triathlon had more than 20 con­tes­tants who bat­tled it out.

Hed­land Tri-Sport sec­re­tary Han­nah Cas­tle­dine said the day was a huge suc­cess.

“We had an ex­cel­lent turn-out of peo­ple of all abil­i­ties who all en­joyed the event,” she said.

“The day was gen­er­ously spon­sored by Life and South F45 gym, who do­nated some ex­cel­lent prizes.”

Star ath­lete Nathan Groch took time out from his rig­or­ous train­ing for his next Iron­man event, to join the run­ners, swim­mers and rid­ers and en­cour­age them to go head-on and try to get as close to his time as they could.

The chil­dren’s cat­e­gory win­ner was Made­line Cur­tis with an over­all time of 23min.50sec.

Un­sur­pris­ingly, the Su­per­sprint win­ner was Groch and Jay­den Vel­jacich, how­ever Toby Wil­son was only 3:07 be­hind with a time of 37:34.

Aquathon su­per­star was Ben Proud­foot with a time of 26:17, beat­ing Josh Blair by only 41sec.

The next event will be Septem­ber 23.
