Six members of Rutland 
Running and Triathlon Club were among the competitors taking part in a event based at Catmose Sports on Saturday.

The Mountainbull Oakham Sprint Triathlon, organised by Race Time Events, included a 400m swim, a 22km cycle stage and ended with a km run.

For four of the club’s members it was their first taste of triathlon.

Kevin Loomes, one of the club’s newer members, said: “It was a great atmosphere and there was a real sense of camaraderie among competitors.”

Results: Martin Gordon-Kerr (1h18m12); Kevin Loomes (1.28.31); Paul Rogerson (1.28.52); Andrea Gordon-Kerr (1.38.43); Nikki Loomes (1.41.02); Celia Bloor (1.44.55).
