From Triathlon England.
The Youth Hostel Association held another GO TRI event at the weekend, this time at YHA York with 16 competitors taking part including YO1 Radio personality, Chris Marsden.
Competitors were treated to a spectacular day with the weather holding off while they participated in a duathlon around the surrounding fields of YHA York. The 16 men and women started the event with a 2km run around the field which was then followed by a 5.4km bike ride, finished off with another 2km circle around the fields on foot.
Lisa Ballantine, the Event Director, is a triathlete herself and the sport proudly runs through her veins.. She is part of York Tri Club and has competed for the Great Britain Age-Group Team at World and European Championship level but claims the buzz doesn’t compare to hosting a GO TRI event.
Lisa said: “I am passionate about the sport so much that organising events such as GO TRI YHA York gives me such a thrill and the opportunity to share that passion with others.”
