OSPREY LEISURE CENTRE HOST THE BUSTINSKIN “SPRINT” TRIATHLON IN TENTH YEAR

For the tenth time the Bustinskin “Sprint” Triathlon was held at Osprey Leisure Centre on Sunday 9th April 2017. The Sprint Triathlon is held twice a year at Osprey Leisure Centre and is organised by the BustinSkin Triathlon Club race team and volunteers.

In 2010 when the event began, around 60 people entered the event but this year the event saw record numbers with 320 entries with many of the entrants coming from the BustinSkin Triathlon Club race team but good numbers from much further afield and all along the south coast in particular.

Mark Steen, Managing Director, BustinSkin Triathlon Club Events  said Osprey Leisure Centre is a great location and always attracts  loads of competitors.  The marshals are all excellent and we receive great feedback from our competitors.”     The April weather was warm and sunny and all entrants thoroughly enjoyed the event starting with the 300m swim in Osprey pool, followed by 17km cycling around the isle of Portland and then the 5km run across the beach road.

Nigel Williams, General Manager of Osprey Leisure Centre said   “It is always a pleasure to host the Sprint Triathlon as it is so well organised by the Bustinskin race team and we see so many of our regular customers who have been training for it at Osprey Leisure Centre. For many of our members it is their first triathlon event and even the staff look forward to working on the day of the race!”
