GTC race at Peebles Triathlon

GTC headed to Peebles at the weekend for the final race of the Live Borders Triathlon series.

For Fiona Greenhalgh, it was an opportunity to try her first sprint triathlon. She did impressively well coming seventh senior female and 15th female overall.

She said: “I managed not to drown  and I  really enjoyed it.”

Bruce’s brother Kier Greenhalgh, also Fiona’s husband, competed in the sprint distance triathlon as well. Other GTC sprint tri competitors included Kate Pearson and Graham Cunning.

Kelly Ludwig took part in the novice distance race. She said: “I am super chuffed after completing my third triathlon in sunny Peebles. I was 20th overall in my race, seventh female and third in my age category.

“Thanks to all the great coaches at the club and to all you lovely folk for your support & encouragement.”

The GTC juniors came home with three medals.

In the Tristart male category, Cory Mcconville was the winner. Brodie Burnett also competed and, as ever, thoroughly enjoyed himself.

His sister, Erin Burnett, had a very close race with Katy Otterson from North Shields in the Tristar 1 females category and ended up in second place.

Erin’s result gave her a first place in the series of three races.
