Southwater relay triathlon results

Any mist had lifted and conditions were mild for the five 7oaks tri teams who made the annual pilgrimage to Southwater country park. With 120 teams of 3 entered, registration and racking was busy but 120 yellow swimming caps made it in to the small lake for an 8:05 start. Much to Steve's delight, they announced in the race briefing that the McDonald's traffic lights would be 'bagged' for the event. Our friendly BTF Technical Officials, Dick and Clare Donovan were overseeing the event.

All 7oaks tri teams did well with some outstanding individual performances. This was the last round of the 2017 SE club competition so Brighton, Surrey and Epsom tri clubs fielded many fast athletes. I'm glad I went first so that I could eat my own body weight in delicious banana & choc chip muffins. Thank you Vanessa and others who baked and brought along food for the team. It was a great atmosphere with lots of cheering and encouragement!
