The weekend got off to a flying start with four club athletes taking part in the Bedford Classic triathlon on Sunday with a 1500m swim, 40k bike and 10k run.
The race attracted hundreds of athletes and with the presence of some professional triathletes it was a high class field.
The Bedford Classic is staged in the town centre, the swim in the River Ouse and the run along its banks.
Again Jack Peasgood continued his winning ways by taking the 17-18 year-old age group and achieving an overall 55th position in 2hr 22min.
Greg Lewis also had a fine race achieving 52nd spot overall in 2hr 20min.
