3rd May 20220

Race report by Stefanie Azuga!


Moving swiftly on from the disappointment of our own tri being cancelled, we have had 7 members from Stortford Tri Club taking part in the Sprint distance with 86 overall competing.


Themi Petridis (01:07:03) and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Bellinger (01:20:36) did amazing and both came first in their age category. Overall Themi was the  2nd fastest male and Lizzie was the 3rd  fastest female of the race which is a great achievement.



Dean Aylott who raced for the first time with the club placed 3rd in his age category with another great time (01:12:16), and placed 9th in the male category.

Paula Beades (01: 31:44) lost out on 3rd place in her age category by merely 86 seconds, and placed 13th overall in the female category.

The remaining competitors all had great results too: Chris Brolly (01:48:01) placed 27th in his age category and 45th in the male category . Both Matt Cole (01:18:20) and Stefanie Azuga (01:39:42) placed 7th in their age category. Matt placed overall 14th in the male category and Stefanie Azuga 19th in the female category.

We had great support on the day from some of the other Club members who cycled all the way to Saffron Walden to support us.

Looking at some of the transition times from some of the team members, coach Lucy already announced that there will be some Transition workshop taking place soon to gain some crucial time back during our upcoming races.
