Date: 21st Jul 2002
Distance: Triathlon

Type: Road
Comments: With a shorter swim than Olympic distance (which has 1400m swim) this race was ideal for new comers to triathlon with quite a few first-timers. Competitors were allowed to perform any stroke for the swim (including backstroke - which I used) and bikes ranged from basic hybrids through to multi-thousand pound time-trial bikes. Both the run and cycle were over undulating terrain (the South Downs) and were extremely well marshalled with a police presence at most road junctions and a number of motorcycle-equipped `Draft Commissars' to penalise anyone slip-streaming .
