Richmond Triathlon Club has celebrated its most successful night to date at the annual North East regional awards at Kingston Park in Newcastle.

Five of its young athletes were rewarded for their hard work and endeavours this season.

The athletes placed in the top three for points scored during the season in their categories.

Athletes that were in the top three included Jessica Askew, Finlay Holmes and Archie Herbert who all placed with the Tristar start age group which is for children aged under 9, with Archie coming first.

Holly McCowie continued her winning ways by finishing first in the Tristar 2 category for children aged between 11 and 12.

The final success of the night came for Matty Cole who came a very creditable second in the highly competitive Tristar 3 section for ages 13 and 14.

All the trophies were presented by Tracey Sample, who is British Triathlon’s North East Chairperson. She congratulated the club for a memorable season.
