Race Report
 
`Blew-athlon!`
Newly formed Team Manvers Tri held their inaugural race. The triathletes, based at the Manvers Waterfront Boat Club, Wath, faced tough conditions on a cold windy Saturday morning. The event consisted of a 3 mile run, 10 mile bike ride and finished off with a 1 ½ mile run around the lake. For many this was their first taste of the multi event sport and what a baptism of fire it was and that’s why triathletes are a tough breed. The first man back on the run was Mark Benton, with Darren Mountrey a close 10 secs behind. It was then onto the bike for a very windy and in some places hilly 10 mile bike ride. As the bike section came to a close Mark Benton held on to his lead by a slim margin of 2 secs over fireman Jon Harworth, who had made a 2 min deficit up on the bike. So off onto the final leg of the event a hard 1 ½ run on an undulating lap of the lake. The race came to an exciting climax with a sprint finish, with Benton just holding off Harworth, with Darren Mountrey in 3rd. It was a tremendous effort from all of the triathletes men and woman alike.
