Wantage Triathlon Results 2013
23rd June - Swim 800m, Bike 35km, Run 12km
This year saw 90 competitors racing through Lambourn, Eastbury and Letcombe covering some terrifying distances which included an 800 metre, 32 length swim in the Swimming Pool at Wantage Leisure Centre followed by a 35 kilometre bike ride through the beautiful countryside and finishing with a 12 kilometre run up onto the Ridgeway.
Congratulations to Chris Hall from Bordon in Hampshire who finished the race the quickest with an impressive time of 1 hour 55 minutes and 50 seconds and Sarah Matthews from Benson near Wallingford who was the fastest female with a time of 2 hours 29 minutes and 37 seconds.
Within the run section of the triathlon there is the much feared ‘King and Queen of The Hill’ competition which tests even the fittest of athletes. Gramps Hill is a notoriously steep 1500 metre climb up onto the Ridgeway from Letcombe Bassett.
The King of the Hill for 2013 was Ryan Morris of the Abingdon Tri Club with a time of 5 minutes 15 seconds while Queen of the Hill was won by Sarah Matthews with a time of 7 minutes 12 seconds, who also won the overall Female Event.
