Perranporth Triathlon 2013

Perranporth Surf Challenge Triathlon

It was with some relief – given the mountainous seas and gales force winds of some previous years – that the organisers and competitors gathered for the briefing in conditions that promised a race that everyone had a chance of completing. That’s not to detract from the challenging swim and cycle stages – or that energy sapping slog across the beach to the finish line. As you can see from the look on this chap’s face as he waded out, there’s still plenty to get anxious about on this superb surf challenge triathlon – though if he’d seen the conditions that the region’s youngest surf lifesavers had faced the day before in the Junior Aquathon he would have been counting his blessings.
