The 10th North Norfolk Triathlon was sold out well in advance this year which proves what a popular sporting event it is.

The Olympic distance event starts with the 1.5km swim in the quay which was split into three waves followed by a 40km cycle route around the villages of North Norfolk returning to the quayside for a 10km run down the sea wall into the Holkham woods and returning along the beach back to the finish at the quay.

The winner of the male competition was Matthew McClure in a time of 02:06:30, Wells man Niall McCallum finished second in a time of 02:07:28. The ladies competition was won by Kate Murrell in a time of 02:24:53. Local family Team O'Neil are proving hard to beat in the relay coming first again for the fifth time with a time of 02:02:21.

The event is considered one of North Norfolk’s leading sporting events and one of the most enjoyable amateur triathlons in the country for competitors due to its unique venue and friendly atmosphere with lots of encouragement from the watching spectators and marshals who are all unpaid and volunteer from the local area making it a real community event.

We would like to thank the sponsors: Sheringham Shoal Offshore Windfarm, Holkham Estate, The Globe Inn, A&M Frary Shellfish and Mr Bill Jordan. Thanks also to all our fantastic volunteer marshals without which the event could not go ahead and last but not least the British Triathlon Technical Official Jonathan Davies.

There have been many photos taken and a few are included below. More can be found on our facebook page - see link on our homepage "Port of Wells".
