Weekend Recap: Bristow’s All Gravy


ETU Triathlon European Champs:

Congratulations to Jack Bristow who this weekend became the European Age Group champion in the ETU Triathlon 20-24 Age Group Champs.  Held in Estonia the champs bring together elite and age group competitors from across Europe. Going in to the champs wanting a spot on the podium Jack excelled to take 1st place. From joining the club in 2017 as Dorridge Fun Run’s 1st non-affiliated local… while we’d like to take all the credit for his progress Jack’s a superb athlete who’s been a credit to the club in his time with us so far.

Top swim, bike, running from Jack following on from Keith Whitehead and Ellaine Callinan’s age-group tri-exploits.
