Izzy makes headway in the Triathlon world!

06 Jun 2017

Last weekend Izzy raced at Darley Moor in Ashbourne Derbyshire in an East Midlands vs West Midlands event that is part of the Junior Triathlon Series. Due to the fact that 2 regions competed, the field was of a particularly high standard with the best children across both regions present. Almost 100 athletes took part in the Tri Star 2 age group, of which 47 were girls.

Izzy performed really well and finished 12th overall in her age group, no mean feat in that field. What was particularly pleasing were her times. She managed to take 41 seconds off her previous 1600m run to clock 6:10 and a further 14 seconds off her 600m run to clock 2:19. Her bike was also significantly quicker though the course was much less windy than at her first race. This shows that her running training both at the club and at school is really starting to pay off. 

Next up is her first Triathlon in Nottingham at the end of June – watch this space!
