Westonbirt 2018

Westonbirt Sprint Triathlon 28th May 2018
This was the first team event for 2018 for the Dursley Running Club (DRC) Tri Team. For many of the team, this was the culmination of 16 weeks of dedicated training for their first triathlon. First-time finishers who can now and forever call themselves “Triathletes” include Fran, Julian, Sam, Tel. All of them wanted to pay tribute and give thanks for the dedication of the trainers Tara, Tony, Jerry and Martin who have coaxed and pushed them to swim, bike and run. You are awesome!

It was truly a sea of blue at Westonbirt with 57 DRC Triathletes competing out of a maximum entry of 500. It seemed that every other athlete that the commentator was talking about was from the DRC Tri Team. This was reflected in DRC Tri Team being 2nd just behind Chippenham Tri Club with 18 teams counting from 2nd to 50th. A testament to the inclusive and welcoming nature of the Tri Club
Particularly impressive results from:
Mike Brown 5th overall in 01:06:01
Tony Freer 3rd Super Vet in 1:11:48
Tara Truman 2nd Vet in 1:18:05
Martin Bragg 2nd Super Vet 60 in 1:18:27

Lynn Murray 2nd Super Vet in 1:23:24
