The triathlon season kicked off last weekend and it was a day for all at East Devon’s N1 Tri Club to celebrate.

Vet Lucy Le Cocq is well known to the farming community in both East Devon and Dorset as she has often been the one who has come racing to save an animal in trouble!

On Saturday, far away in Taupo New Zealand, Lucy was being watched on live video link by many of her clubmates as she took part in a different race - The New Zealand Ironman.

She completed the 2.4-mile swim,112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run in a shade under 14 hours.

In doing so she became the first club member of 2015 to join its growing ‘Ironman roll of honour’.

Patrick Livingstone was representing Devon in the County Cross Country Championships on Saturday, but still managed to finish second junior and third overall in the men’s race.
