THE fourth Norwich Triathlon was held recently, and with the option of Olympic distance and the new sprint distance it attracted a field of over 400 competitors.

Seven Bungay Black Dogs took part with five in the Olympic distance event.

This event took in a 1500m swim in Whitlingham Broad followed by a 38k bike ride around South Norfolk lanes and finished with a 10k run around Whitlingham Park.

Terry Garrity enjoyed success by finishing in 2-33:31 to take first place in the Male V55 category.

Lynne Emmett emulated his performance to take first place in the Female V40 category in a time of 2-41:30.

Ali Morton was next in 2-56 and was awarded third V45 with Andy Drinkell a few seconds behind in 2-56:26.

Sue Potter just crept under the three-hour mark by 48 seconds and her reward was first place in the V50 category.

In the sprint distance which comprised of 750k swim, 20k bike and 5k run, Robbie James finished in 39th overall from 150 competitors in a time of 1-13:43 with Karen Waters putting in a good performance to finish in 1-38:.06.

The Mutford 5k Relay was held on Sunday, July 13 and Bungay Black Dog Running Club had five teams entered in the main event which had to have a female runner to start then followed by four other runners.
