AVRs Luke Reed drove to Bournemouth early on Saturday morning to take part in the Salty Sea Dog Sprint Triathlon organised by Votwo events, writes Dave Mutter.
It consisted of a mass start two-lap 750m sea swim which he completed in 11:24 followed by a 14-mile two-lap bike course with one significant hill at the beginning of each lap.
Reed managed 42:51 for this. The 5k run was a flat two-lap course along the Boscombe sea front which he completed in a time of 19:17.
This gave him an overall time of 1:15:09 and fourth place overall out of 130 finishers. The race was won in 1:11:03 by former AVR Richard Easton.
