11 podiums for club at Allander Aquathlon

Eleven club members raced to podium finishes at the recent Glasgow Triathlon & Boclair Dentalcare Allander Aquathlon (Autumn) 2019.

The race is part of the annual Triathlon Scotland Junior Aquathlon Series and for 2019 the event incorporated an Adult Go-Tri heat.

The race is sanctioned by Triathlon Scotland and sponsored by Boclair Dental Care.

The GTC aquathlons take place in spring and autumn and continue to be popular with a wide of ages and abilities of athletes taking part. Many GTC members took part while others gave up their time to volunteer at the busy race.

As usual, the cake stall proved very popular and boosted the junior section funds by £186.45.

Race director Peter Soden said: “It was another very successful event for the organisers, volunteers and the competitors in what proves time and again to be an event attracting first timers and seasoned racers. We also had a good Go-Tri entry.

“There were some extremely close finishes. It was also a pleasure to hand out a host of ‘most improved’ prizes featuring many members of GTC, too

“Thanks also go to Paul for some great photos that captured the day.”
