After a last minute dash to get together a team for the open category at the 2017 National Team Relay Championships at Holmes Pierrepoint, Nottingham on 26 August – Ian Smith, Simon Powner, Lloyd Bebbington and Matt Jones flew the flag for NTC.
Against tough competition with 196 teams entered overall, 155 in the open category, NTC’s team finished with honours taking second in the open category and seventh overall.
This event has been going since 1991 and has grown in popularity over the years. It’s a great day out when the true team spirit of triathlon shines through. It is highly recommended for the events diary for next year.
