Mike Hailey and Alistair Doig were in the Lake District for the Helvellyn Triathlon, a hilly race that includes the infamous “struggle” towards the end of the already hilly 38-mile bike course and almost 2km of ascent overall.

Both were evenly matched for the swim and bike, with Doig completing them in 29min and 2hrs14 respectively, but Hailey had a great run and completed the nine-mile route over England’s third highest peak in 2hrs08, seeing him home in a total time of 5hrs04, four minutes ahead of Doig.

Jani Campbell and Scott Brumby raced their first triathlons this weekend. Campbell did the Ely sprint finishing in a time of 1:21:19 placing her 11th in age group. Brumby did the St Neots Sprint finishing in 1:40:07 placing him 26th in age group.

Colin Simpson also raced at St Neots; his 1:23:52 placing him first in his age group.

Adrian Ebbs raced the Vitruvian at Rutland Water. He completed the 1.9k swim, 85k bike and 21k run in a time of 5:35:18.
