Eton SuperSprints returned to Dorney Lake last weekend, marking the start of many people’s 2015 triathlon season with a two-day event that offered a range of events from the kids’ Scootathlon to the adults’ races.


Saturday started with the first LittleLife Scootathlon (390m scoot/390m bike/250m run), with 100 kids taking part. The children’s efforts were rewarded with a t-shirt and medal giving them all fantastic bragging rights at school the following week!

Having had all winter to cool down, Dorney Lake greeted the adult triathletes with a less than balmy 14 degrees. The intrepid first wave struggled with the temperature to begin with but soon got into their stride as they swam fast to keep warm.
