Natasha Goes One Better

Local athlete, Natasha Harris-White, took first place in the Reading Triathlon at the weekend in only her third triathlon (having come second in her first triathlon she did at Dorney).

The Reading Triathlon took place at the Kirtons Farm Water Sports Centre last Sunday. It started with a 1500m swim in the Tri2O lake, followed by a 44km cycle around the local lanes of Burghfield, Mortimer and Grazeley, and finished with a 10.8 km run around the lakeside trail.

After her race, Natasha said “I’m delighted with my time of 2 hours 33 minutes as it was a slightly longer course than usual and I’d done an extra loop in the swimming lake as the fog early morning was so thick that I missed the exit and I was 12 minutes faster than the 2nd fastest female.”
