THE CHALLENGING Hilly Hathersage sprint distance triathlon proved no pushover for members of High Peak Triathlon Club.

The event, organised by Sheffield Tri Club, comprised of a 420-metre swim in a heated open-air pool, followed by a circular 20km bike ride and a 7km run - with precious little flat terrain.

Phil Blundell, from Buxton, was the first High Peak Triathlon Club competitor home in a very commendable time of 1.30 , finishing in 45th position overall. He was followed by Monyash’s Nicola Dick (1.34) and Phil Duffy, from Buxton, (1.39).
