COMPETITORS in the 10th anniversary Cockerham CancerCare Sprint Triathlon awoke to a very wet and windy morning.

Thankfully the rain abated but the very strong NW wind made the 350m open water swim particularly testing this year. A 15km cross country bike ride and 5km run around Cockerham completed the course.

They enjoyed another well organised and well marshalled event. Thanks again go to Ian Bailey of the Runners Centre, Lancaster, for his support.
