While of course, it’s not all about the winning and triathlon novices are just as welcome as the regulars, it wouldn’t be right if the fastest finisher didn’t get a prize for their toils.
To congratulate the person whose strength, speed and stamina – that which they will have undoubtedly sweated and grimaced to improve and rise to the challenge – proved to be the best on the day, we’re giving them a holiday with Natural Retreats and a wetsuit from Blueseventy.
The winner will receive a congratulatory winner’s letter and gift certificate – which you will need to use to book your stay - for Natural Retreats Yorkshire Dales, which is set in 55 acres of countryside in Swaledale boasting great walks and cycling routes. You’ll enjoy a three-night stay in a luxurious self-catering lodge, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, wood-burning stoves and a modern open plan design.
As for the Blueseventy wetsuit, the winner will be given a Fusion Full Suit worth £245. It has a unique buoyancy profile with thicker leg panels to help elevate them, plus 1.5mm A-Flex arms and soft Yamamoto neoprene which means that the suit is super flexible, while still delivering on the best durability and comfort.
So, if you weren’t already planning a training plan for how you can win the race, you’d best get on it now.
