Vectos Tortoises win Colliers TRYathlon for second consecutive year
Congratulations to the Vectos Tortoises comprising Stan Gruncell, Mark Clements and Jason Huxham for winning the Male Team category at the 2016 Colliers Bristol TRYathlon, with a time of 52 minutes and 9 seconds.
Captain of the Vectos Tortoises Stan Gruncell said Colliers organises a great event each year, which is evidenced by the increasing number of competitors since its inception four years ago.
“The TRYathlon not only raises money for wonderful charities but also brings 250 competitors from our industry together for a fantastic day that promotes fitness,” he said.
“This is our second consecutive win and we beat our 2015 time by more than three minutes. Our goal is to improve to under 50 minutes next year, and hopefully take the title again."
Our second team, The Vectos Hares, comprising Dafydd Rees, Andrew Dennis and Nick Bosanko finished in twelfth place with a time of 1 hour and 11 minutes.
Mark and Andrew competed in the 400 m swim, Stan and Dafydd competed in the 16 km rural road cycle, and Jason and Nick competed in the 5 km run.
The event raised £5278 for Colliers chosen charity Wooden Spoon Bath and Bristol. Wooden Spoon is the UK’s leading grant-making charity, helping children and young people all across the UK. With roots in rugby, they are one of the country's largest funders of respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds, sports activity areas and community based programmes.
