Five Members from Andover Triathlon Club put there Easter Eggs off for a few hours to compete in the Avon Aquathlon on Easter Sunday. Avon Aquathlon is run by Green Coaching and is based in Durrington.
The event consists of a 500m pool swim followed by a tough 5km run, an out and back route over Salisbury Plain.
For three of the team it was their first experience of a multi-sport event. Sandra Jones, Peter Rowland and Kelly Rowland all lined up feeling rather nervous. The weather was perfect and soon the event was under way.
First from the Club to finish was Jeremey Burgess in a total time of 30:36 making him 2nd place male veteran. Next over the line was Jan Taplin in a fantastic 34:58 finishing as 2nd place female veteran.
Peter, Kelly and Sandra all finished with some fantastic times for their first event and whilst they were all glad to see the finish line, there is no doubt we will see some of them in a few local triathlons planned in the next couple of months.
Well done everyone – a great effort all round!
