It always gives us great pleasure to hear from our Trigirl community across the globe. This week we received a delightful race report from Jill Buckenham, living across the continent in Spain, who took part in her very first triathlon at the end of May, the Madrid super sprint run by the Spanish Triathlon Federation. She not only completed the distance but managed to win her age category! Well done Jill! A fantastic achievement!
Jill tells Trigirl that some of the super sprint events in Spain are for women only and are great for beginners with the event in Madrid being “a lovely friendly event and extremely well organized, with some incredible support from the locals”. Jill would like to encourage more women to take up the sport of triathlon saying; “the Super Sprint is a perfectly manageable distance and there’s nothing like the thrill of putting all 3 disciplines together”.
So there you have it girls! Just go for it!
