Race report: Huntsman Triathlon
Hunt leaders Always Aim High sound the bugle for their first triathlon outside Wales
More than 350 triathletes headed to the Hawley Hard army training ground in Hampshire last Sunday for the first edition of the Huntsman Triathlon.
The races started with an open-water swim in Hawley Lake, followed by a road cycle around the local countryside, finishing with a trail run through Hawley wood and around the lake.
In the men’s Olympic race (1500m/47km/10km), Colin Dixon beat nearest rival Robert Fryer by more than 2mins to cross the line in 2:20:38, while 2013 Gauntlet winner Karl Alexander came third. In the women’s race, Rebecca Slack comfortably won with a time of 2:49:40, with Ruth Thom and Marie Coburn taking second and third place.
In the sprint distance races (750m/20km/5km), there were some good battles throughout: Tim Wallis won the men’s event in a time of 1:13:33 and Katrina Yerbury triumphed in the women’s race with a remarkable time of 1:23:37, which placed her in the overall top ten.
