BURNDENERS TRI HARD


The West Lancashire Triathlon has its HQ at Edge Hill University and is one of the most highly rated events for first timers in the North West.

The 400m swim takes place in their indoor pool, the 18.5k cycle is a flat, 3 lap course and the 5k run takes in the trails around campus before finishing on the running track.

Donning their swim, bike, run gear for the Spring edition were a quartet of Burnden triathletes who, despite the crazy wind and being blown around on the bike and road, all brought tremendous tri-times home.

Michelle Carter took on her first tri and smashed it in 1:36:06 including transition times. Her times for the three disciplines were 12:27 in the pool, 55:38 on the bike and 23:27 for the run.

Sarah Woodiwiss returned this year and finished in 1:53:20 including transition times. Her swim was just 9:09, cycle time was 58:31 and run time was 33:18.

Martin Cullen finished the event in 1:25:14 including transition times. Pool time was 9:08, the bike 47:53 and the run just 23:48.

Stephen Riddle, seasoned triathlete and pro-coach completed the event in 1:26:21 including transition times. Steve was in the pool for a swift 6:43, on the bike for 49:28 and on the road for 26:04.

Lyall Mew achieved the fastest run time with 19:58 and completed the whole tri in 1:18:57 including transition times. His swim time was 9:11 and he was on the bike for 44:39.
