More than 50 runners finish first of three Burnham-On-Sea Aquathons

More than 50 athletes took part in the first of three Burnham-On-Sea Aquathons being held this year at the town's Swim and Sports Academy on Sunday (March 8th).

Steve Ferguson from Plymouth won the event, comprising a 500m swim and a 5km run, in a fast time of 28 minutes and 19 seconds.

Local runner Matt Freeman was the first Burnham athlete home in a time of 31 minutes and 38 seconds.

Three Burnham Aquathons of varying distances are being held this year, instead of the normal one race. Organiser Martin Rogers explained to "We've decided to split the event up into three so that there is an event for every ability."

"The shortest race was held on Sunday and the second race on March 29th will be a 750m swim and a 7km run. The third Aquathon will be held on April 19th and will be a 1,000m swim and a 10km run."

"We welcome entries for one, two or even all three events - there are no restrictions other than a minimum age of 15."

Entry forms can be picked up from the Swim and Sports Academy in Berrow Road or by calling 01278 785909.

Entry fees cost £15 per individual race for British Triathlon Members and £18 for non-members.

Entries for all the races are £39 (British Triathlon Members) and £48 (non-members). Each race is limited to 120 competitors.
