GTC took home two gold medals from the inaugural Lochore Off Road Triathlon 2019 event in Fife this month. There were other strong finishes by some of our junior competitors.
Win for Charlie
On the day, the races, which included a “full distance”, “relay, “short distance” and a Tristars 3, became duathlons due to water issues.
It was in the Tristar 3 race that GCT member Charlie Treharne took first place in 36:24. He finished 10 seconds ahead of the second placed competitor.
Charlie said: “I felt like I had a good race and I felt strong throughout.
“I was glad that I won, but most of my competitors were racing at the Inter Regional Championships so I can’t be too proud.
“Taking away the competitiveness, it was a fun race, which was friendly and didn’t have a swim.”
Also competing was Cameron O’Brien who was fourth male despite a nasty fall during the run. Alasdair Padmanabhan was sixth male.
Win for Lucy
Lucy Donaldson was first female in 45:04 and fifth overall. Holly Glen took third female place in 01:07:54.
In the “short distance” triathlon – which also became a duathlon – club member Jamie Glen finished fifth in his junior male category and 11th overall.
