Holkham Middle Distance Triathlon Success


The stunning grounds of Holkham Hall set the scene for the Holkham Middle Distance 70.3 Triathlon at the weekend. Three TAC athletes took part in the swim, bike, run event consisting of  a 1900m lake swim, 56 mile undulating bike course and a 13.1 mile rolling run around the Holkham estate. Conditions were warm and breezy and Simon Smith was the first TAC competitor to finish in a course PB of 4:42:40 for a very impressive 3rd place in his age group of 171 athletes. Next to finish was Karl Wright – again a course PB in 5:28:22 and 44th of 164 in his age group. It was first time on this course for Lukasz Ryzinski who finished in 6:10:14 for 106th place in his age group.
