>2015 Regional Tetrathlon Report

Area 9 Competitors help Central England to two 4th Places at the Senior Regional Tetrathlon – 8/9 August 2015

 

As last year, the 2015 Senior Regional Tetrathlon competition was held at Aylesford cross country centre, Melton Mowbray, and the Meres Leisure Centre, Grantham. There were an increased number of competitors this year (36 boys and 81 girls) from all corners of the UK and Eire. Changes to both the running and riding courses really made for a testing event, but the standard of competition remained extremely high with 9 boys and 20 girls scoring over 4,000 points. Luckily, this year, the weather was good throughout, which made the camping and social side of Tetrathlon all the more enjoyable.

 

Central England fielded 1 boys’ team, 3 girls’ teams and 2 individual girls. All our competitors put in the maximum effort and there were some great performances over the weekend. The boys’ team finished in fourth place and the girls’ teams finished 4th (Gold), 6th (Green) and 10th (Blue). Individual highlights were:

 

6th Individual Girl – Hannah Anderson

10th Individual Boy – Ollie Hall
