Holmwood House Junior Triathlon
Sunday 16 May 2010
Holmwood played hosts to Triathlon England's Eastern Region event which is run for the school by Discovery Triathlon Club. It has become an annual event which always attracts well over 100 entrants because it is a mixed event for both novices and the region's league-competing triathletes.
The weather was kind and provided near perfect conditions for this very strenuous sport of Swim-Bike-Run.
All Holmwood pupils who entered gave excellent performances, with several taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes home.
This popular Colchester event could not take place without it's sponsors to whom the school is very grateful and are: Griffin Chapman, Chartered Accountants
Happy Monkey Smoothies,
Army Recruiting Team, Human Performance Unit.co.uk
Qlik View - Business Intelligence Software
and, of course, Discovery Tri who on the day organised all the racing and spent most of the previous day planning, measuring and setting out the course.

It was so impressive to see all the Holmwood children trying so hard - and stilll smiling at the end!
