The Surrey Hills were alive with sunshine and adventure racers on the morning of the 15th April – the last Tri-Adventure Sprint event of the Spring series. Record numbers turned out for the exciting and fast paced adventure though the beautiful Mickleham countryside.
Registration was a buzzing with excitement, a fantastic mix of the experienced and complete newcomers to adventure racing coming together to plan their race strategies, free tea, coffee and biscuits helping in the process! Our Tri-Adventure experts were on hand to offer expert tips and advice to anyone who needed it.
At the sound of the klaxon the competitors took off on the run, some choosing to head into the Surrey Hills while other chose to head towards the picturesque village of Mickleham – strategies differing from racer to racer.
The transition onto the bike stage was fast paced and furious, most grabbing a free hydration drink supplied by Thrive-active before jumping onto their bikes. Our winners were well deserved, each winning Thrive-active vouchers and lots of Tri-Adventure goodies:
Male: 1st: Nick Gracie, 2nd: Adam Marcinowicz, 3rd: Ben Turner
Female: 1st: Sabrina Verjee, 2nd: Victoria Starr, 3rd: Karen Jones
Male: 1st: Martin Fitchie, 2nd: Roger Powell, 3rd: Hugh Lacroix
Female: 1st: Bronwen Fisher, 2nd: Carolyn Wharton, 3rd: Catherine Gadd
Spring Series winners: Michael Krajewski and Julie Jefferies
After the event our Tri-Adventure EXPO was in full flow, with free tea/coffee and cakes for a much needed sugar rush before the important prizegiving! Thrive were on hand with fantastic offers on sports nutrition products and there was the opportunity to give some spare change to our chosen charity – Rainbow Trust.
Our next event is the famous Tri-Experience, a 3.5hr adventure race in the beautiful Swinley Forest in Surrey , the perfect step up from the sprint on the 17th June, we can’t wait and would love to see you there too!
