Success for Richmond Triathlon Club

On Saturday 13th October Richmond Triathlon Club celebrated its most successful night to date at the annual North East regional awards at Kingston Park in Newcastle.

The North Easts friendliest triathlon club hailed five of its young Athletes who were rewarded for their hard work and endeavours this season. The club based in Richmond had five athletes place in the top three of points scored during the season. This represented a cracking result for one of the best run clubs in the region.

Athletes that were in the top three included Jessica Askew, Finlay Holmes and Archie Herbert who all placed with the Tristar start age group which is for children under 9, with Archie coming first. Holly McCowie continued winning ways by finishing first in the Tristar 2 category for children aged between 11 and 12. The final success of the night came for Matty Cole who came a very creditable second in the highly competitive Tristar 3 section for ages 13-14.  

All the trophies were presented by Tracey Sample who is British Triathlon’s North East Chairperson, applauding the club for a memorable season.
