Wirksworth’s John Potter raced in the Locko Park sprint triathlon on Sunday.  There were a handful of very high quality triathletes in the race, with some very fast times but John finished 12th, towards the top end of the next bunch.

The swim for this triathlon was 750m in a lake, followed by a 21km bike and then a 5km run.  If you want to give triathlon a go, it is easy to find one that starts with a 400m swim in a pool, usually followed by a 20km bike section and then a 5km run.  Why not give John a shout and he will encourage you to give it a go!
