Triathlon doesn’t usually get a mention in these pages, but the Snowman Triathlon took place on Sunday 5th October, and some Eryri Harriers were competing. The full distance event was a 750m swim in Llyn Mymbyr, a 69km bike with just a couple of hills including the Crimea Pass, and then up and down the old favourite Moel Siabod.
It is very worthy of note that club member Helen Teasdale, was 2nd lady overall and 1st in the v40 category, a fantastic result against a quality field. She was 25th in the overall field of 231. Her overall time was 3.49.01, with a Siabod time of 1.07.33, an amazing effort.
She showed a few Eryri men how to do it by beating them hands down.
Tim Watson took 3rd V50 and 32nd place in 3.55.14 and Siabod in 1.11.02.
Hugh O’Donnell 36th in 3.57.15 and Siabod in 1.08.32.
Craig Jones 60th in 4.08.34 and Siabod in 1.10.33.
In the Sprint Distance Allison Donnelly racing for Padarn Tri was 52nd out of 116 overall and 1st V40 female in 2.21.32., and Helen John was 63rd and 12th female in 2.26.06.
