Go Beyond Sport hosted their second annual standard-distance Pitsford Triathlon last Sunday (12 July), seeing competitors race through an overcast Northamptonshire.
Women’s podium (winner Lindsay Romecin far right)
With a confident run and cycle, Lindsay Romecin finished 4mins ahead of the second-placed Katie Beckett. The runner-up posted the fastest run in the women’s category – a 45:12mins split.
Beckett had to work hard for her second place, seeing off a formidable challenge from Sarah Ashcroft. The pair were just a minute apart when Beckett got to the T2, but Ashcroft couldn’t close the gap any further and had to settle for third place.
