MPH Turriff Sprint Triathlon
The first of the Aberdeenshire Council MPH Triathlon Series took place on Sunday 21st April in not so sunny Turriff. Spread over 6 heats, starting from Turriff swimming pool, around 100 competitors from as far as Shetland braved the wind, rain and hailstones. The temperature was around 8 to 10 degree C, which made it interesting on deciding what to wear when leaving the warm pool to start the bike section. Some decided to wear a cycling jacket whilst others just wore their Tri-suits. Probably a bad decision as the heavens opened and hailstones made conditions even more difficult on the last heat.

The race was won by Pete Fenwick from Shetland Triathlon Club in 01:04:33. Phil Edgeley (Fleet Feet Triathlon Club was 2nd in 01:06:22. David Horne (Ythan CC) was 4th overall in 01:07:48 and 1st in age group (Veteran). David also posted the 3rd fastest bike time (00:36:54) of the day (5 secs behind the 2nd fastest) for the 21 km hilly bike course.

The next Triathlon in the MPH Series is at Westhill (Sprint & Novice) on Sunday 21st July
