A new season of Argo Re Summer Series triathlons–the “Super Sprints”–got off to a good start today. As usual, the field comprised a healthy mixture of veterans and newcomers, men and women, and young and old.

I arrived early, armed with a saw in one hand and a Garmin in the other. The saw was to enable me to clear the vegetation on the run course; the Gamin was Plan B in case it was too overgrown and I needed to set another course using GPS to determine the distance accurately. As it turned out, neither was needed. I was delighted that the course had been very thoroughly cleared before I arrived–so well done and thanks to (I assume) the Parks Department.

Congratulations to Tucker Murphy, who won the opening race. Matt Thompson in second pushed him hard until losing a little ground on the run. One of the new faces, Chris Hands, grabbed third place.

The leading lady was a “young veteran”: Laura Hope has been coming to the Super Sprints virtually since she was crawling. Well done, Laura. Liz Stewart–modelling a new, hot pink tri-suit–was second, with Rebecca Harrison in third.

A big thank you to Tammy Ingham, who helped with sign-up; Janet Harrison, our guardian angel at the bike turn; Caleb and Otis Ingham, who took care of the swim buoy; and to everyone who pitched in to help.

All the best

Alan
