Third race for triathlon juniors
Triathlon season is well and truly back. The third race for the Wild Dog Triathlon Club juniors 2017/18 season finally welcomed some warm weather, making ideal conditions for all the participants.
Twenty-two competitors turned out to race. Some old hats at racing and a few new people to the sport that were very pleased with their race results.
There were a couple of personal bests and some fabulous times recorded – overall a great effort by everyone who raced. The barbecue at the end of the race is still a great hit and an incentive for some children.
