The sun came out just as the club volunteers arrived at Horsham Park to set up for the very first Horsham Go Tri event, a welcome sight after the heavy rain forecast throughout the week. The Aquathlon event, consisting of a 200m pool swim and a 3.4km run was a roaring success for Horsham Tri Club as their first self organised event. It was good to see the event was supported from the sidelines by Jenny Vincent, Triathlon England, and Ian Ford, Horsham District Council Sports Development Officer. The competitors, aged between 14 and 56 years old, arrived at Pavillions in the Park with excitement, aniticipation and quite a few nerves, for many this was their first experience of a multisport event. Nonetheless they all cheered each other on and completed the course with plenty of smiles.
