Tricketts Sponsors 11th Rossendale Triathlon

On Sunday 29th of May,  Tricketts Insurance Brokers Sponsored Rossendales 11th Sprint Triathlon.  Our two directors, Roger Shadlock and Janine Packman took part in one of Rossendale’s most popular community sporting events of the year.  Entirely organised by Rossendale Triathlon club members, the glorious weather conspired to create a fantastic family atmosphere.  After the event many commented on the friendliness and hospitality shown by everyone – just goes to show what an amazing place Rossendale is!

This established triathlon attracted novices and more established athletes from far and wide; all candidates were united in testing themselves against a 400 metre swim in Marl Pitts pool, the undulating 21km bike route through Water, Crown Point and Loveclough and to finish a 5km run around the sports centre grounds.  Some of the competitors were competing on behalf of charities whilst many relished the personal challenge.

Overall winner of Rossendale Triathlon 2016 was Martin Cain of Triguru with a superb time of 1:03: 15.  First female was Vanessa Holland with a time of 1:17:03.  Roger and Janine achieved personal best times; they trained hard and practised new swimming and cycling techniques enabling them both to knock minutes off previous years’ timings.

As the main sponsor, Tricketts proudly branded the free bright green hooded top that all 285 competitors received and donated a useful snood/tube/headband for cycling and running.  On behalf of Tricketts Insurance Brokers, Rawtenstall, our two directors went on to present prizes – all in all, a good job done and a sponsored event well worth the investment #comebacktoyourlocalbroker – proud to be local.
