Go Beyond Sport hosted their second annual standard-distance Pitsford Triathlon last Sunday (12 July), seeing competitors race through an overcast Northamptonshire.


With a significantly larger turnout than last year, Ian Smith was the cream of the crop, taking the victory in the men’s category. Lindsay Romecin saw off the competition in the ladies’ category and crossed the line first.

A new perpetual trophy was introduced at this year’s race, which was to be awarded to the first club team. Rugby Tri Club, who were using the event as their Standard Distance Club Championships, won the first award.

Coming from behind

After leaving the water third, men’s winner Ian Smith came roaring out of the reservoir, excelling on the bike and run, and posting splits of 1:03:13 and 39:21mins respectively – the fastest times of the day.
