Triathletes on the run – on the track, road and cross country
With the World Triathlon Abu Dhabi postponed, the weekend saw many international athletes seeking out alternative racing options. I spotted quite a few of those – along with some past and present triathlon names – running around the world (or domestically), across a range of surfaces and distances.
Check out some of those below!
Hayden Wilde – New Zealand 5000m track champion
Richard Murray – no Abu Dhabi, so also jumped onto the track
Not the time I was looking for 14:17 for the 5000m . It’s the start of the season and it’s just first real rep over 1km so need to be realistic I guess … Great end of week 5k after some good weeks training and little taper . 2 days and we off to Netherlands 🇳🇱 😅 Good by warm pic.twitter.com/znfhC8VeE2

Second for ex-GB Elite Adam Hickey and fifth for English National Champion Calum Johnson in the Senior Men’s race. A strong third place for Hamish Reilly in the Under-17 race too.
🤯 Wasn’t expecting this today…
