Local Daventry man Dave Lane, won the sixth Viridian Daventry Triathlon at the weekend (September 17th), in a tremendous sprint distance race that saw the top three men separated by less than one minute.
What’s more local business Viridian Nutrition won the inaugural corporate Viridian Gold Team invitational award. Tom Welch, Viridian Nutrition Marketing Manager said: “Yet again this event produced some spectacular results, for our team, for beginners to the sport and for Daventry.”
Garry Haynes, Race Director said: “The weekend’s race once again produced some close competitive racing from over 250 competitors, great supportive crowds and some wonderful and exhilarated first-timers. We are so pleased that with the backing of Viridian Nutrition and other local businesses we’ve seen the popularity of this event grow.”
Competitors swam 400m at the Daventry Leisure Centre, cycled 20k around local countryside and ran 5k around Daventry Country Park. The event, this year, supports two charities: Local Air Ambulance and Genetic Disorders UK.
