Triathletes achieve personal bests
TEESDALE ATHLETIC CLUB
LINDA Scandrett and Skye Archer completed the 100 kilometre Race to the Stones trail event over the weekend.
The run goes along the oldest path in Britain, The Ridgeway, and finished at the iconic Avebury Stone Circle.
The course was hilly, technical, narrow in places and very hard underfoot.
They had to negotiate a lot of walkers too. It was extremely challenging and although much of both days it was slightly overcast, it was still really warm.
There was an overnight camping stay and the atmosphere in Base Camp was amazing.
They stopped at every pit stop, and just looked after themselves as they were more concerned about finishing, feeling well and staying in one piece.
They had a brilliant time and would recommend this event to anyone looking for a challenge.
On Sunday Trudy Layton, Mandy Harrison and Clare McGrath took on Washington Triathlon.
A very early start ensured that the athletes had completed their swim and bike ride, part of which was on a dual carriageway, before most car drivers were out of bed, making it a safer event.
Following the swim and bike disciplines, they then had two laps of Princess Anne Park to run. New PBs were achieved with over two minutes knocked off their previous times.
