Pete Tri's for Gold
07 May 2018
Silk Group's director Pete Slater took part in his first triathlon event on the 6th May 2018. The Horwich Triathlon also known as 'The Race To The Pike' is one of the oldest triathlon events in the North West, dating back over 25 years.
It starts with a 500m pool swim and then a 40k undulating cycle ride, but we save the best bit until the end. The 8.6k run climbs all the way to the summit of Rivington Pike, before descending back to the finish at Horwich Leisure Centre.
Pete said: "I really enjoyed the day but it was very tough, my next challenge might not necessarily be a triathlon."
Pete crossed the line with a time of 02:47:42 and finished 329 out of 439 participants.
