A Finale to remember

On 19th September Human Race signed off the Triathlon season with a spectacular finale featuring over 850 triathletes posting some of the best times of the season. With the pandemic having impacted the two previous Dorney Lake Series editions this year; Eton Sprints Weekend and Banana Tri, Season Finale offered a degree of normality which helped boost the atmosphere contributing to great racing!

Competitors were eager to post season best times with Chris Debonnaire and Elisabeth Kilcourse posting the fastest Sprint (750m swim, 21.2 km cycle, 5km run) times of the day. All fastest provisional times can be seen below.

With Season Finale rounding off the Dorney Lake Series for yet another year, a year that has been unlike any other but one that I’m sure we’ll all remember as racing returned. We look back at the best moments:

  • Eton Sprints saw the introduction of the staggered starts, something that many of you preferred…
