Richmond Triathlon Club runs Go Tri event

The Go Tri organisers and helpers from Richmond Triathlon Club.

Richmond Triathlon Club organised its first Go Tri aquathlon aimed at novices and beginners to multisport this week.

With fortunate weather 30 participants swam in the pool and then ran along the banks of the Swale.

One competitor travelled all the way from Buckinghamshire although they did have a family connection to the area.

Club chairman Richie Smith said: “We are delighted once again to be able to offer sporting opportunities to all with the help and support of Richmondshire Leisure trust.”

The club hopes to offer more Go Tri events next year so those interested are urged to keep an eye out for details.

There are places available in the club now if anyone would like to give the sport a try.
