Another win for Harlow’s Triathlon Super Stars
HARLOW Tri Club members took part in the second event (of 5) of the Herts and Essex Tri Super Series on Tuesday 21st May and secured a team victory to add to their victory from the first event, a duathlon, at the end of April.
Harlow’s Tri Club is also one of the founding members of the series which was launched by Tri Sport Epping last year. The events are free for all members and encourages participation from people of all abilities.
Event 2 was an aquathlon which was held at the Lee Valley White Water Centre. The aquathlon required the entrants to complete a 500 metre open water swim before doning their trainers and running 5.5 kilometres.
Harlow’s Paskell Blackwell was the first finisher in an amazing personal best and club record time of 29 minutes and 6 seconds. Harlow Tri Club had a total of 24 competitors and their 9 amazing female athletes scored more than double the number of points of the second placed team.
Chair of Harlow Tri Club, Paul Schroder, said “This was a great turnout and an absolutely fantastic result, we have incredible triathletes competing
