ALMOST 100 people took part in the Wargrave Sprint Triathlon on Sunday as part of this year’s village festival.

The event, which consisted of a 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km, was the first of its kind to be held in Wargrave.

It was won by Phil Holdcroft, who carried his two-year-old daughter, Bella, across the finish line on his shoulders. Mr Holdcroft, 33, a helicopter pilot at RAF Benson, said the race was a father’s day present and he hoped he could defend his winning time of one hour, five minutes and 12 seconds next year.

Barry Keane, from Chalfont St Peter, came second, while Gill Fullen, from Bedford, was the fastest female, beating her brother, Adrian Parsons, from Wargrave.

Organiser Adrian Pagdin said: “It went extremely well and we had lots of positive feedback.”
