Medals and Easter eggs were the prizes for athletes earning their chocolate at Try Tri Events’ Good Fri Tri last weekend, held around the grounds of Radley College near Abingdon.


Those competing in the novice category had to endure a 200m swim in the pool, a 11km cycle before running 2.5km to the finish line. The sprint course was exactly twice as long as the novice course.

The event got underway at around 8 o’clock in the morning, with competitors setting off every five minutes in the pool.
