Over 150 compete in Burnham-On-Sea's summer Sprint Triathlon

Over 150 athletes from across the region converged on Burnham-On-Sea on Sunday (June 7th) for the town's annual summer triathlon.

Organised by Burnham-On-Sea Swim and Sports Academy, the popular Sprint Triathlon saw the athletes swim 500m, complete a 20km cycle ride, and then do a 5km run. The event finished on Burnham beach, watched by spectators.

Jason Emmett from Evolution Triathletes won the overall event in a fast time of one hour and 44 seconds. The first lady home was Celia Miall from West Country Triathletes in a time of 1:06:57. Both are pictured with organiser Martin Rogers.

Martin told "I'm really pleased with how it went. The numbers were slightly down on last year, but the standard was still very high and we had some competitive racing." Full results here.
