Dunston Sprint Triathlon – Sunday 23rd April

One of the first triathlon events in the East Midlands and the UK. This great early season sprint triathlon event attracts both experienced and first time triathletes.

The event starts with the 400m pool swim at the Duston School in Northamptonshire, followed by a 1 lap 20km bike route. The bike leg is full of cheeky little surprises, our favourite being the hill at Great Brington. But don’t worry; the bike course is in the very scenic countryside surrounding Althorpe House, so plenty to take your mind off the cycling should things get a little tough going. The 1 lap run course brings home the event with a fast 5 km finish.

 

Stuart Mann (Pictured Below) finished with a time of 1:09:17 and was 74th overall (out of 301)

Jordan Mann finished with a time of 1:24:43 and his first Tri of 2017
