FOUR members of St Helens Tri had a weekend to remember at one local classic and two venues further afield.

Kath Livingston began the Salford triathlon weekend on Friday as part of the Shoosmiths Delta relay team and went home happy as they placed third in their category.

On the Saturday Claire Murphy produced a blisteringly quick run to finish second less than half a minute behind the winner in the half ironman distance race at Tri Tyrone in Northern Ireland while Robert Chesters took part in his first open water triathlon at the Snowman Sprint Triathlon in Capel Curig and marked his debut with a ninth place finish.

The following day saw Phil Ellison round off the weekend in style in partnership with Thatto Cycles at the Salford sprint distance triathlon as he set the fastest bike split of the day en route to second overall.
