PACTRAC (Peterborough Area Combined Triathlon and Athletics Club) held the first of their Club Championship races on Sunday.

Thirty-three competitors raced the opening Mid-Distance Triathlon (900m swim, 20 mile bike and a 5 mile run) with seven new members competing in their first triathlon and Roger Canham winning in his first race with the club.

Roger is the early leader in the club championships, with Emma the leading lady.

l JAAP Flikweert competed in the Half-Ironman distance Marshman around Romney in Essex.

The race became a Duathlon because the water level was judged dangerous.

Distances were: 3 mile run; 56 mile bike and a 13.1 mile run.

Jaap stayed towards the head of the race, and finished 8th overall, and 1st in his age group in a time of 4.36.11.
