Nearly 40 people took part in a beginners’ triathlon at Bircham last Sunday.

Hosted by King’s Lynn Triathlon Club, the GoTri event gave local people the opportunity to sample the fun of a triathlon in a low-key, friendly atmosphere across shorter distances.

The athletes swam 200m in an indoor heated 25 metre pool, followed by a 6km bike and a 2km run.

The event proved hugely popular with participants with universal feedback that it was a fun and well organised race. The men’s winner was Owen Marsden in a time of 21.05 and first across the line for the women was Francesca Hall in 22.48.

Hall, who has already signed up for another triathlon after Sunday’s event, said: “It was a really enjoyable event, great marshalling and support throughout.”
