Harwich organisers thrilled with success of gruelling race
2:00pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
HARWICH Triathlon returned with a spectacular new course that enticed almost 100 competitors to take part in the gruelling challenge.
The event began with a mile-long swim around the iconic Dovercourt Bay lighthouse.
Athletes then climbed on their bikes for a 40km ride out to Bradfield, Horsley Cross, Beaumont-cum-Moze and then back to Harwich for a 10km run along the promenade to complete the race.
The Olympic distance triathlon was staged by Harwich Runners.
Organiser Clare McKenna was delighted with the event.
“It was a really great success,” she said.
