Photographs by Thomas Hughes

ON Sunday, 22 May 2016, hundreds of people attended the Southport Triathlon which included an open water swim in the Marine Lake and a fast paced bike ride, on part of the Coast Road, which had been closed to traffic for duration of the event. These were followed by a scenic run around the Southport's Marine Lake. We are told that the event had two races, a shorter one and a longer one. The first was the Southport Marine Lake Triathlon Sprint Distance, during which participants had to complete a 750m swim, do a 20km bike ride and then, to round the Sunday morning, a 5km run. If that sounds bad then the 2nd event, the Southport Marine Lake Triathlon Standard Distance was definitely not for the faint hearted.
