The battle continues between Aaron Davis (in 1st place), with a total time of 56:57, and Anthony Arthur (in 3rd place) on 59:42. With Anthony recently narrowly beating Aaron in the Age Group Triathlon, this rivalry will be one to watch!
The two are separated by Big Sy who sits in 2nd place with a total time of 58:12. If Big Sy could reveal his full name to a member of the committee, that would be most helpful!
The only female to complete all 5 segments so far is Nadine Bubner - come on girls!
Tuesday morning rides often provide an opportunity to notch up times on the Peak, Mount Butler and Repulse Bay and Saturday mornings for Shek O and Disney. Let's set a few segment records over the next few weeks.
This Saturday's TT Bike Clinic is set to take on the Full Disney segment, so watch out for a few PRs over the weekend.
Alex Kolb is the only Triton to have completed all 4 run segments.
Following Sunday's running group's attempt to set records on the Bowen Road segment, Anthony still holds the fastest time in a blistering 14:49.
Last week the runners chose the Racetrack as their training ground. Laurent Laclaverie is the sprinter holding the track record of 4:53, with Toby Chu closely following on 4:58.
Look out for more updates at the end of June.
The Tritons Strava Challenge has something for everyone! We’ve selected a variation of run and ride segments to test you, and an open water swim to complete to finish off the challenge.
The 2016 challenge runs from February 1st to November 30th 2016, so there's still plenty of time to record your times!
You can attempt each segment as many times as you like - only your fastest time will be added to your cumulative time for each of the disciplines and overall.
