5 athletes of Tri Energy took on Chester Deva Divas this weekend. The best part about this ladies only race is that it welcomes all athletes, from complete beginners to experienced, competitive triathletes.
Courtney and Georgia were making their triathlon debuts – having to borrow wetsuits to swim in and bikes to race on! Jess and Faye, having competed in one open water swim event before were keen to build on their triathlon experience having had some brilliant results already this year. And Sam seemed to find herself on the start line for this sprint event just 2 weeks after the Breca SwimRun.
Apart from a mishap with Faye’s chain coming off, and Georgia stopping to puke on the run, the race went relatively well! With over 300 competitors Jess and Sam managed to squeeze into the top 10, Faye and Courtney had a sprint finish to come in 40th and 41st respectively and Georgia looked relieved to see the finish line after a tough debut! More impressive were how high the ladies finished in their age groups with 2 on the podium, and 2 just missing out.
A brilliant day racing amongst like-minded ladies! Congratulations divas!
