Around 150 adults and children took part in the Cameron Intellectual Property Allander Aquathlon and Go-Tri event, organised by Glasgow Triathlon Club, on Sunday March 15. There were more than a dozen podiums among a strong turnout of 65 GTC members.
It was one of the last mass participation races to take place in Scotland before the wide-sweeping effects of the Covid-19 outbreak.
The aquathlon, comprising a pool swim and a run, offered the opportunity for an early season race for youngsters. The Go-Tri is a novice distance aquathlon for senior athletes.
Distances for the swim ranged from 50m to 400m and run distances were between 600m to 3km, depending on age groups.
Pete Soden, race director, said: “Glasgow Triathlon Club was once again proud and pleased to deliver a successful, competitive and very well attended Allander Aquathlon, while acknowledging those who could not attend for the wider circumstances and reasons.
“From Tri Starts to Go-Tri competitors it was great to see them all giving their best. I also have tremendous respect for the distances that families will travel to support our aquathlon.
“As always, too, I am grateful to all our volunteers from the club whose presence keeps the popularity of this event high and flying. It would not be possible to stage our races with out these kind hearted people.”
