The club had an awesome trip up to Aberdeen last weekend to compete in the Aberdeen University King’s Aquathlon. It was a great turn out with 19 members from EUTri coming along to race against St. Andrews, Sterling, and Aberdeen university triathlon clubs.
It was a cold and early start at cse on Saturday morning and then we all drove up to the sports village in time register and set up transition in the rain. The longer course racers set off first swimming a distance of 800m followed by a run slightly longer than anticipated of 11.6km around the sports village and finishing round the athletics track. Next was the short course racers, who swam 400m and ran 6.3km. Despite a mix up with the lap counting EUTri still had an incredibly successful day with lots of medals: for the short course Nat was the 2nd female student and Ivan was 3rd male student, while in the long SSS course Rachel was 2nd female, Paul was 1st male and Rian was 2nd male!
Following the race we all went to the Bobbin for copious amounts of delicious pub grub and then headed out into Aberdeen for a night of crazy dancing and surprise champagne deliveries. Overall a fantastic weekend congratulations to everyone who came along and competed.
