We were blessed with glorious weather for WT14 this year, in the first year of trialing a different swim distance. Following the disappointing number of entries in 2013 it was hoped that by cutting the length of the swim from 750m to 400m we may have encouraged more triathletes to enter especially novices who may have been put off by the swim length. As it turned out we had a similar number of entries to last year with about 140 taking part.
From the feedback we have already received those that raced really enjoyed the event and we have had nothing but praise from the competitors about the enthusiasm and helpfulness of the marshals.
I am pleased to announce that we also received a glowing report from our BTF Race Referee on the day Peter Bryan.
