Race Report – East Grinstead Sprint Triathlon 13th May 2018
Once again, the ATC sprint championship was to be in East Grinstead. A cold, yet dry, start to the day greeted the Ashford triathletes. At 8:40, we took over the whole pool, and after a technical timing issue (ever common at EG), the pool was filled with eager swimmers clad in blue.
The race stayed dry and first across the line for the club for the second year in a row, and to retain his sprint champion title, was Alex Milne in 4th position (2nd in age group) with 1:09:20, followed by myself with 1:14:08 (11th overall) and Keith Russell one second behind with 1:14:09 (13th overall). Paul Barron won the Ultra-vet category with 1:28:40 (92nd overall).
First female over the line was Amanda Magnabosco, also for the second year running and retaining her sprint champion title, in 1:34:27 (13th female). She was followed by Olivia Gilmore with 1:40:49 (29th female), and Sarah Spencer with 1:42:49 (38th female). Mandy Cooper won the super-vet category with 1:51:47 (49th female).
