Drake Commercial took part in the EMW Tri Challenge at the weekend, which was held at Emberton Country Park. The event is part of a wider triathlon competition, with the team entries helping to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
Representing Drake Commercial were Joe Smith on the bike, Tom Drake doing the run and guest Tim Webster in the swim. The triathlon consisted of a 750m open water swim, a 20km bike ride and a 5km run to finish. The team finished a respectable 10th out of 18 entries, with a time of 1:22:34.
After they finished, Partner Tom Drake stated “The event is very well attended and well organised. Despite being a little hesitant about our lack of preparation… we thoroughly enjoyed the morning and more importantly, it obviously raises money for an excellent cause. Thank you to EMW for inviting us to enter, we look forward to taking part again next year and with a bit of training, who knows, we might even improve on our time.”
