As I feel compelled to congratulate the teams involved in the York Tri, it was my 1st triathlon and thoroughly enjoyed it. The event was fantastically run with the staff/volunteers been excellent, I've done plenty of 10k's 1/2's marathons, tough mudder types but this was off the scale in comparison. from the minute I attended pre registration to the minute I left.....BUZZING! WELL DONE!!!
Would just like to say
A massive thank you to everyone involved in York triathlon 2015. This was my first triathlon event and it was a brilliant experience. All the marshals and event staff were helpful and friendly. Am now looking for more events to enter and want to complete a full ironman distance in the next two years. Thanks again,
My first York Tri
But 3rd year competing and just wanted to say what a great triathlon this is, really enjoyed the traffic free course, brilliant marshals and facilities, I have already booked for next year! :-)
