Another fantastic day of racing. The threat of rain put a few people off coming but the 26 that raced had a fabulous time. The marshals were great, cheering everyone on.
The race was put on to give people a bit of practice racing open water before their big races on bank holiday weekend. 8 of the racers are off to Lisbon to the European Tri Champs and a fair few of the other off to Nottingham to compete in the sprint or half iron distance races.
Due to the cold water, the swim was kept close to shore and became a 2 x 200m lap swim to make the 400m. The bike was a quick blast up to Widdrington roundabout and back and the run was a single lap of the lake.
The winners of the male and female races were in the lead from start to finish but the minor places were hotly contested with the positions changing numerous times.

Hello everyone, Alnwick Tri is once again holding a GoTri Duathlon at Druridge Bay on the Sunday the 24th of April. It will be great for anyone wanting to attempt their first Duathlon or anyone wanting to kick start the 2016 season. The race will start at 9.00am, consisting 2.6km run, 10km bike, 2.6km run and at a bargain of £5 to enter. Follow the link below for more information and to enter.
On Thursday 19th May, Alnwick Tri Club will host a Super sprint triathlon in the evening.
with a 400m swim, 6 mile bike and 2.6k run, it is an ideal mid week training race that does not effect your training or taper to events the following weekend.
We are hosting this race as there are no open water races in the region before some of the big races such as European and world qualifiers, Outlaw Half and Lisbon European Champs.
It gives the opportunity to test out race preparation and open water training in a very small field of less than 50 people run along our very relaxed lines. Cheap and cheerful. Lay your bike on the grass in transition. £10 per entry if you are a home nations member.
Whilst it is not a problem being slow on the bike or the run, we are asking that you do not enter the race if you have not swum open water before 2016 or if your current pool swim time is longer than 9 minutes. This is because the water will be very cold and the potential for hypothermia on the bike is too high. If you do enter and the you are still swimming at 10 min, you will be pulled out of the water and your race will be over.
Alnwick Tri hosts a number of GoTri events for beginners throughout the year which anyone can enter.
