Beccles and Nene Valley events appeal to Three Counties members

Three Counties Running Club members took on the challenge of two different running and swimming events at the weekend.

Sarah-Jane Macdonald and Jayne Spurrier travelled to Beccles to take part in the Beccles triathlon and Aquathlon event while Rachel Cooper and Steve Clarke were at the Nene Valley Swim Run.

The Beccles Triathlon and Aquathlon are both exhilarating and fun events for experienced triathletes, aquathloners and novices alike.

The event consisted of a 420m swim in the 30m lido then once leaving the pool running to your station to put on your trainers before running the 6.7km route to the finish line.

Participants can enter as individuals or as a team.

Macdonald entered the heated pool and completed her 420m swim in a time of 9:53 and then had to hand over the timing chip to Spurrier, who enjoyed a fantastic run completing the 6.7k in a time of 35:57 to give the ladies a combined time with transition of 45:46.

The ladies had a fantastic result by finishing 12 out of 41 participants but were shocked when it was announced that they were the winning team in the relay by more than 10 minutes.
