Hull, Yorkshire welcomed more than 120 participants recently for the first Hull Triathlon, organised by local club Humber Triathletes.
The action started early on Sunday 26 July with a 750m swim in Princes Quay, followed by a five-lap 17km bike leg on closed roads which passed Queens Gardens, the Old Town and the Fruit Market. The final 5km run leg passed tourist attraction The Deep and Myton Bridge.
The first athlete to cross the finish line was David Pearson, of Whitgift School Triathlon Club, with a time of 1:00:51. Naomi Drakeford took the first place for a female, representing local club Barracuda Triathlon, finishing the course in 1:06:38.
Race Director Graeme Wrightson said: “A big thank-you to those who made the event possible. Whether it was helping out before, during or after the race, each person ensured Hull’s first triathlon was a great success. For an event in its first year, I think it went really well. Next year is going to be even better.”
