Andover Triathlon

Team Kennet had a big turnout at Andover Triathlon on 21/07/19, with podium positions for seven athletes ranging from the Junior TriStars 1 category all the way up to the “vintage” age group.

Ten Team Kennet triathletes competed in the adult race which comprised a 440m Swim, 30km Bike, and 8.3km Run. The fastest Team Kennet triathlete was Bart Kuijten, competing the race in 1:31:47, making him the 3rd fastest in the 40-49 “Vet” age group and 7th overall in a very competitive field. Chris Hall was not far behind, in 1:36:18. Martin Colston (note – also currently the leader of Newbury Town Council!) finished in 1:44:00 which put him on the podium in 2nd place in the 50-59 “super-Vet” age group. Phil Cowhig came 3rd in the same age group in 1:47:26. Finishing a little later was Ron Stephenson in 1:57:59, which gained him 2nd place in the “vintage” age group (aged 60 and above).

For the juniors, in the TriStars1 race Anna Hall was 2nd placed girl and Ethan Kuijten was 3rd placed boy. In the TriStars2 race Emma Davies was 2nd placed girl.
