Ath­letes test their stamina

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - FRONT PAGE -

SCORES of ath­letes swam, biked and ran their way across Red­car in a gru­elling test of stamina and de­ter­mi­na­tion.

A to­tal of 157 com­peti­tors took part in yes­ter­day’s Red­car Triathlon.

Once the swim­mers had com­pleted the 750m swim, they ran up the steps to Tuned In! and, af­ter a quick change out of their wet­suits, they hopped on their bi­cy­cles and be­gan the se­cond leg of the event.

They each tack­led a 20km bike course along the seafront, end­ing with a flat three-lap run around the boat­ing lake and prom­e­nade - com­plet­ing a 5k in to­tal.

The weather stayed bright and dry for the many spec­ta­tors who lined the beach and road to watch their fam­ily and friends take part.
