Clitheroe Sprint Triathlon - Easter Fun in the Sun
When God made the cyclist he knew that the cyclist thrived on climbing hills and with this in mind he created one of the toughest climbs in Lancashire, Birdy Brow.
Then came along the Triathlete, who thought "hey why don't we tag on a 400m swim and a 8km lumpy run and make a race out of it, we can call it the Clitheroe Sprint Triathlon.
The Epic Events Triathlon is one of the toughest races locally and on a hot Easter Sunday morning IMTC athlete Tony Byrne was doing his first race of the season. Racing in the MV 40 age group Tony put in a great performance for a long distance triathlete, finishing in 1:49:20, 16th place out of 73 for his age category.
Brilliant effort Tony, well done.
