EYEMOUTH was the host town for the last in the BSLT triathlon series. Despite weather forecasts, the sun shone, but temperatures stayed quite low.

The bike route was as hilly as usual, but the run route had been changed. Instead of going over the cliffs and along the beach, competitors were taken along the harbour and up to the golf course before turning back by the new school.

Fifteen Border Triathlete club members took part and came home with a pile of trophies.

Jane Holmes won first female vet and second female overall in 1hr 19mins. Charlie Roberts took first male vintage in 1.31.

Rupert Norris and Keith McLure, as usual, battled it out round the whole course to finish fifth in the exact same time, 1.11, while Jonathon Taylor gave his all to finish 14th 
in 1.15.

Other competitors were Kevin Gillie, Johnny Rutherford, Kevin Fairbairn, Rachel Fagan, John Haldane, Katrona Methven, Lauren Cameron, Robyn Methven and Liz Taylor.

In the Come & Tri event William Taylor (son of Liz and Jonathon) stormed round the course to finish eighth.

Overall series winners were also decided with the club faring well again: 1st male vet, Scott Noble; 1st female vet, Jane Holmes; 1st female super vet, Katrona Methven; 1st male vintage, John Haldane.
