    Off and running: Nick Pilgrim finished first on Good Friday


Youth elite triathlete Nick Pilgrim held off the challenge of 2017 Bermuda national champions Geoff Smith and Alan Potts to cross the line first on Friday in the Good Friday Home event.

Pilgrim exited the water with a healthy lead in 10min 19sec with the impressive Maddie Durkin out second in 11:27. Geoff Smith was third out in 12:05 but used his renowned cycling ability to reel in Pilgrim and enter T2 with a narrow lead.

Pilgrim, though, produced the fastest run of the day for the approx 4.7km (17:21) to catch Smith and crossed the line with a 49-second lead. Alan Potts was third.

Durkin produced a solid bike and run to take sixth overall and overall women’s honours over Liz Stewart who continues to impress after taking Most Improved Triathlete honours at the recent BTA dinner. Vivienne Lochhead was the third woman across the line.
