This year Boston Triathlon Club was joined by two fitness enthusiasts from Spalding and they have embraced triathlon lifestyle like a sock on a foot!
Ben who came from a swimming background – with earlier years as a National swimmer – now adapts his training and swim skills to National Waterpolo league.
Adam – who teaches during the week and outside of school time hits the Ice – as an Ice Hockey ‘mighty duck’ superstar – who also pushes his contact sports into waterpolo!
Both lads fancied a final end of season challenge… so why not take part in the sundowner… A unique triathlon – Half Distance 1900m Swim, 56mile Bike and finish with a 13.2mile half marathon run.. – The idea of the event is to beat the sunset!!
Ben a complete newbie to this distance – Adam taking part in his second attempt at this distance – the nerves were evident on social media in the lead up to the race..
Both guys did the club and there families proud.. Completing in respective times, beating the sun and earning the medal and beer which followed!
Its fantastic for a club to gain athletes from other sports who find the addiction of Triathlon and embrace their training from other sports into their new found craze!
