Jacqui takes another medal!
Congratulations to Jacqui Allen who took silver at the XTERRA Pan America Championships in Utah this weekend.
The triathlon in Utah is extremely tough, as athletes have to deal with the high altitudes of the course.
The triathlon consists of:
- 1.5km swim at 4,900 feet elevation
- 28km mountain bike ride, with climbs from 4,900 feet elevation to 7,000 feet! The trail includes rides over dirt, rock, and tree roots.
- 10km trail run, with a climb of 700 feet. The route starts through fields of wildflowers and onto some short, very steep, uphill climbs.
Jacqui had a fantastic race and finished in second place overall with a time of 02:58:11.
Her splits were: Swim – 00:23:31, Bike – 1:44:21, Run – 00:50:15 (plus transition times). See the full results here.
A huge well done to her! We’re proud to sponsor Jacqui, who is originally from Stoke-on-Trent.
