Humbert Challenge – Project 52 #30

Yesterday Swinford Tri-Sports held their 5th annual Humbert Challenge Triathlon. In previous years the event was a Half Ironman Triathlon consisting of a 1.9 KM swim in Callow lake, a 90 KM bike and a 22 KM run. This years Humbert challenge was changed to the Olympic distance triathlon which is a bit shorter than the Half Iron Man distance. The Olympic distance swim is 1.5 KM, bike is 40 KM and the run is 10 KM. I have been Marshalling at the Humbert Challenge for the last 4 years and have photographed the event for the last 3 years. Out of the 460 or so photos that I took yesterday, these are my favourites!

Think this is brilliant, even the young toddler in mums arms has a “Go Daddy Go” t-shirt! All the official times from yesterday can be downloaded and viewed from RedTag Timing here.
