STRATFORD Triathlon was race season finale for 20 Do3 members at the weekend when competitors raced over a 400m pool swim, 18km bike and 5km run in wet conditions.

The squad scored personal bests again and produced two top ten finishers in the ladies’ race. Louise Croxson was third lady overall and first in her age group in a time of 1:03:13 and Becky Gray was third in her age group in 1:08:19.

Lisa Parry produced a course personal best in 1:09:05 and also secured first place in her age group.

Tasha Chandler, Kate Wilson and Laura Castle also took part in the event and pulled off impressive timings in a field of more than 100 female competitors.

In the men’s race, Jez Emmett was third in his age group and top 20 as he came over the line in 1:00:16, followed by James Hodges in 1:05:36, Rob Wilson in 1:07:45, Andy Cunningham in 1:13:38 and Paul Nash in 1:20:55.

The relay race was also a tightly-fought contest with Do3 teams securing second and third places overall.

Grant Marshall, Marcus Gaskell and Andrew White completed the event in 57:24 – just 29 seconds quicker than team-mates John Wrottesley, Amy Hinton and Jamie Chatfield.

Do3 head coach Dave Knight said: “There’s always a buzz amongst the squad with this race as it is very much on home turf.

“Again, there are personal bests and podiums and it’s a mark of another good season for Do3. It’s time for winter training now and to get ready for what we hope will be a fuller race calendar in 2021.”
