Ruthin Tri 2017 Race Report

Ruthin Tri Stars hosted their annual sprint triathlon at Bryn Hyfryd leisure centre in Ruthin on the 14th May. Members of GOG Triathlon Club and their families have supported this event and the proceeding junior races since the clubs inception so it was no surprise to see a number of GOG’s in action.
