6th December 2015 and 24th January 2016- North West Triathlon Club Winter Series 5kms- Race 2 and 3

Race Two: A clear and bright Sunday morning made conditions perfect for two female Spartans who charged home in third and fourth place in this quick paced race. Janeen Leese 21:01 and Bridgeen (New PB of 21:05) tore through the ranks of competitive runners and more than made up for the Cross Country race they missed the previous day, Saturday 5th December, due to poor weather conditions. A strong race by both Spartans!

Race Three: On Sunday 24th’s North West Triathlon 5K, two more Spartans toed the line, Paul McCafferty and Micheal Murphy, and had a close ding dong throughout before McCafferty got away for the win late on. In windy conditions both made their intentions clear early on and it was McCafferty who made the break into the wind for the win in 16.33. Paul is currently in training for the London marathon and looks good at this point while Murphy will be pleased to have went quicker than in Raphoe last weekend. Mark Mullan was reliable as ever in 4th. Pauls young son Paul og showed running is in the family with a 20.00 clocking. Karen Cutliffe was 2nd in the ladies race with a good time of 21.53.
