Westonbirt Sprint tri race report

First tri of the season done – very windy Westonbirt.

Pretty cool having your name on your race number, feel like a pro ! Lol. Nice bit of bling for finishers too. Historic beautiful architecture for transition backdrop.

Over 600 entrants, a really well organised event with a good course apart from a 600m run from the swimming pool to T1.

You needed to wear shoes so almost a third transition 🙂 so it looks like we have the worst swim times ever as swim and run to T1 all in together on results.

Bike ride undulating but an evil gusty wind was ever present. The run also a little undulating but some shade and scenic.

Swim 7:41 / bike 49:09 / run 29:07 plus T1, T2 & T3 forever. Total time 1:31:08

They’ve changed to course since last year but as it was my first time here it didn’t make a difference to me. Plenty of Calne leisure locals and good support on run route and finish.

Sprint tris to me are like 5k runs – far too fast & furious ! Bristol Olympic dist up next so more my distance.
