Three members of Tri3 Sleaford Triathlon Club, Louise Short, Sandy Telfer and Derek Jones completed the Outlaw Triathlon at Holme Pierpoint, in Nottingham.

The full ironman distance of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run had to be completed in under 17 hours, which all three athletes accomplished.

Louise said: “I managed to gain two personal bests in my swim and bike and my run was only 12 minutes over my previous marathon time which isn’t bad considering what I had done before it! 

“I hit a couple of dark places on the bike, but my little book of inspiration worked a treat and I definitely felt my grandma urging me around that bike course.”
