2nd club aquathlon 2016

The winner: Gregor Stewart.
The winner: Gregor Stewart.

Some 30 club members turned out for the second in the three-part FionaOutdoors GTC Aquathlon series this week.

Blessed yet again with good weather, the athletes swam a two-lap circuit in Pinkston open water pool (around 400m) and then ran a three-lap route of 5.5km.

An added mini hill climb made the run a little tougher than the first aquathlon, although there is a rumour that the swim was slightly shorter.

Non-racing club members helped with marshalling the run course and generally cheering everyone on.

It was another successful evening with everyone racing hard, offering support and smiling broadly (after the finish line).

No matter what your fitness ability or experience, the club aquathlon series is a great way to enjoy some focused training and to spend time with like-minded people.
