A TOTAL of 13 athletes represented City of Lancaster Triathlon (COLT) at multi–discipline events at the weekend.
Sarah Hodgson and Beau Smith travelled to Loughborough for the British Elite Duathlon Championships.
Sarah, who was competing in the Youth 15/16-year-old age group made a good start and was lying 4th at the end of the first 2.5k run.
Her inexperience showed during the 10k bike section, but following a strong second 1.25k run she finished in an excellent 8th position.
Beau, competing in the Junior Section, ran 5k, cycled 20k and then ran a further 2.5k. With the Juniors racing with the Seniors, Beau found the early run pace hard, but nevertheless worked hard through the cycle section and second run to finish 10th Junior.
