We’re really really (really!) pleased to announce that Mark Buckingham will be joining us and competing at the Last of the Summer Tri on 12th October 2014. How cool is that?
Mark who is a member of and trains with our friends at Holmfirth Harriers also trains with the Brownlee Brothers in Leeds. And if you didn’t already know, he recently won his first British Elite Triathlon for the Olympic Distance in June 2014 after previously being British Elite Duathlon Champion. So he’s got the creds then!
OK, whilst Mark is highly likely to win the Last of the Summer Tri, he won’t be taking all the glory from the two hotly tipped contenders going head to head; local lad Jonny Mclean and Hamish Shaw of Knutsford Tri Club.
Mark is sponsored by Yonda which is run by Angus Greenwood who some of you may know from Holmfirth Harriers.
