On Saturday morning I was in Totton covering a charity triathlon on behalf of Rose Road Association in conjunction with Totton Running Club, Bruce Elkins of CW Fellowes and The Southampton Daily Echo. The competition was organised by Naomi Lush of Rose Road Association and her team, and featured 44 competitors.
As the part of the event, the competitors had to swim, then cycle and finally run. Competitors were of varying ability, however the winning wasn’t the point of the event. It was to raise money for this very worthy charity.
Having completed the event, the competitors all received a medal, and prizes were given to the winning team. Mr Ian Murray from the Southampton Echo, was on hand to present the prizes. Naomi was able to confirm they had made an amazing sum of approx £8,000. I would like to add my thanks to all the competitors for their effort and to all those involved in organising it.
