You may have seen a group of 'wet suited' swimmers in the sea on Friday evenings in Sidmouth.

They are all members of East Devon's N1 triathlon club. The sport of triathlon is booming as it allows participants to enjoy the benefits of a rigorous fitness regime with plenty of variety. Last Sunday was one of the first races of the season at Roadford Lake . A 750 metre open water swim followed by a 20km cycle leg and finally a 5km run. Sidmouth's Jane Beech (one of the club’s highly successful women's team) came home in a magnificent third place in the women's race and was second in her age category.
