Eton Super Sprints

Dr Craig Mclean headed off to Eton for one of the summer series of supersprints.

Glorious weather
It was a fantastic day, and the rowing lake looked really quite inviting! The organisation was very slick, and there was even a kiddie triathlon before hand consisting of running, cycling and scootering. The race centred around the 2km rowing course, and all activity and transitions were based at the course headquarters.

Exhausted but triumphant
Craig managed to lead the race once again, but this time also left the water first, to much cheering and headed off to the transition. A good cycle helped him maintain a podium position, but the running on such a unusually hot day took it’s toll, and he limped home in 6th position with some very impressive blisters.
