In photos: Burnham-On-Sea Aquathlon is hailed a runaway success!

Dozens of athletes of all ages took part in the latest of a series of aquathlons in Burnham-On-Sea on Sunday morning (April 11th).

The event, organised by Burnham Swim and Sports Academy, comprised of 1000m swim and 10km beach run, followed by a Childrens 'Splash and Dash'.

The morning was well supported by entrants from across the region and was won by Iain Hindes from North Devon Triathletes in a time of 53 minutes and 26 seconds, almost a minute ahead of second-placed Dan Whaites from Cardiff.

The youngsters race was won by Ollie Nicholls (over 11s) and Oscar Rogers (10 and under), both of whom are members of Burnham Triathlon Club.

Organiser Martin Rogers from the Swim and Sports Academy told "We had great weather for the event and a good turnout of competitors of all ages. Thanks go to everyone who supported it."

Burnham's triathlon will be held on April 25th, when parts of the seafront will be closed while the athletes complete a 250m swim, a 10km bike ride and a 2.5km run.
