Junior Triathlon Results
7th October 2001
Wick Triathlon Club's UKAEA Junior Triathlon went ahead yesterday in good weather conditions compared with the previous weekends weather which meant the event had to be postponed.
Although the weather was good the High school park remained very wet causing the organisers to look for a change of venue. Unfortunately there is no suitable alternative in close proximity to the school. Caithness Glass kindly allowed the use of their car park after shop hours. This is why the race did not start until after 5.00pm. Circumstances also meant that the race was effectively 3 separate races with the results being added together to work out the total overall team times.
Complete results have now been worked out and are on their way to schools along with tee shirts, certificates and trophies to those concerned.
With the main emphasis being on participation the organisers are delighted with this years response of 5 high school individuals and 46 primary school teams giving a total entry of 143.
The leading places in each category are as follows
- 1st year girl : Alison Gray - 12:48
- 2nd year girl : Helana Rosie - 10:11
- 2nd year girl : Avril Bremner - 12:55
- 2nd year boy : Christopher Bremner - 10:53

Wick Triathlon Club are once again very grateful to UKAEA Dounreay for their continued sponsorship which provided Tee shirts and certificates to the entrants. Also to Caithness Glass for use of their car park at short notice. Thanks also to Wick Branch of the Red Cross who fortunately were not called into action and all who came along to help and support on the day.
