Triathlon in spain


Hot Spanish sunshine and post-race sangrias anyone?

Trigirl would like to congratulate Jill Buckenham who raced in a very hot 30 degrees at the Valencia triathlon in Spain and came 1st in her age category! Well done Jill, a brilliant performance! This triathlon in Valencia is a highly popular event attracting over 1,200 triathletes, racing the Olympic, Sprint and Super Sprint distance and also with a special event for women named “Triathlon de la Mujer”! Trigirl Jill really recommends this event exclaiming, “the course was amazing! The swim takes place in America’s Cup port, the bike section is on the F1 road circuit and the run goes past the America’s cup team bases!”

Sounds like triathlon heaven!

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!
