Michael achieves 6th Place in Grafman Triathlon

Congratulations to Michael Jones, who achieved 6th Place in his age group (52nd overall) at Grafman 2015 – The Triathlon England Middle Distance Championships.

Michael was very happy with his time of 4:38:28 – a much improved performance compared to the start of the year.

The event took place at Grafham Water Visitor Centre on June 28th. The starting gun sounded at 8:00am on what turned out to be a wet and windy day.  The competitors battled on through the inclement weather and the event was a great success. The gruelling course included:

1900 metre swim in Grafham Water (completed in 35:24)

55 mile bike ride in wet and windy conditions, (completed in 2:37:07)

13 mile run along the north shore of Grafham Water (completed in 1:23:07)

The event was organised by Nice Tri Events.
