Doug comes in 6th

Cheltenham Ladies sweep the prizes at Westonbirt Triathlon which took place in the beautiful grounds of Westonbirt Girls School.

Nikki Weatherly from Cheltenham Triathlon Club won the overall ladies prize at the Westonbirt Triathlon on Sunday May 29th in a time of 1:17:40. Nikki has been a very competent runner for many years and took up triathlon with the Cheltenham club in 2010. Not a swimmer Nikki trained with the club every week to enable her to get to a good enough standard to compete at a high level. Nikki's biking has also improved considerably by cycling with the club and picking up tips from the coaches.

Sue Bathgate won her 60+ category in a time of 1:21:45 and Cathy Booth won 3rd place in her super vet category in a time of 1:32:28. Fastest man home from Cheltenham was Doug Waymark 6th in his category with a time of 1:08:45. Jez Preston Jones was 5th in the male vet category.

The swim was in a heated indoor pool and because of the narrow lanes the swim was in most part crowded which lead to fairly slow times. Out of the 400 metre swim the transition was long but once onto the 24k bike the scenery was outstanding, passing the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum and the Royal Residence of Highgrove. The bike course was flat but on the day very windy so a challenge for all competitors. The 5k run was once again in the beautiful school grounds around Westonbirt village.
