By Pete Woodhouse

This weekend Three Counties Running Club Members ‘Tri’-ed something different when 11 members travelled to Skegness to take part in one of the sprint triathlons in the Lincolnshire Tri Series.

The series consists of sprint events in Grantham (April), Skegness (May) and Lough (September).

Ten of the 11 club members had never taken part in a triathlon before. The members had all been training hard since before Christmas.

The sprint event consisted of a 400m pool swim, 18k cycle and a 5k run. The cycle ride was two laps on a very bumpy road. The 5k run was also two laps, leaving the transition area and running on uneven backroads and into a wooded area.
