Heading out on the bike she made up plenty of places, getting off the bike in third.

Maintaining the pace, Katie headed out to the run with the second fastest female run time to finish in third overall.

Katie’s next race takes her to Ibiza to compete in the European Championships, where she hopes to finish in the top 10 in her age group.

One of Boston Triathlon Club’s newer competitors attended the Derby Triathlon.

In only her third event, Rachael Satchwell was among the 45o-strong field which took on the sprint distance in the village of Etwall.

The PMA Racing event consisted of a 400m pool swim, 18km bike ride, and 5km run.

A bike course of gentle rolling hills brought a new challenge for Rachael with her relative inexperience of riding outside of the flats of South Lincolnshire.

The run was mostly an off-road course on a disused railway line, which again made use of the Derbyshire hilly landscape.

Rachael completed the course in a total of 1 hr 27 mins, and came ninth in her age group out of 32 females.

Boston Triathlon Club saw 24 junior athletes compete at the LincolnTri Children’s Triathlon.

The event took part at the Yarborough Leisure Centre in the city, the swim being held in the 25m indoor pool, the bike on a track and the run on a mixture of grass and tarmac, all within the complex grounds.

The team excelled themselves and came away from the event with two seconds and a third in age category and a win for the fun run.
