SPW Hyde Park Sprint Triathlon
The 2009 Student Partnership Worldwide (SPW) Hyde Park Triathlon took place this weekend (Sunday 26th). This exclusive and popular sprit triathlon, organized by Across the Divide, was once again a great success with 227 competitors taking part in this sunny spring morning.
Some were elite athletes; many were novices out for some healthy fundraising challenge in Britain’s greatest park. The race consists of a 400m swim in the Serpentine, 15km on the bike on South Carriage Drive and finally a 5km run through the leafy paths in the park.
The men’s winner was Tyler O’Callaghan in a time of 50:21:6. First woman was Louise Bartlett in 1:03:45:1. The fastest team was Team Jean in 55:20.8. Well done to all who took part.
This event is SPW’s main annual fundraiser and we look forward to seeing more people joining in next spring - contact Across the Divide for more details
