On 25th September, Katherine Jones, Associate in the P&D South and South West team, represented Great Britain at the European Triathlon Championships in Valencia.
The event was a sprint-distance triathlon which took place in and around Valencia marina against some of the top age group triathletes in Europe. Katherine qualified for Team GB for the European Triathlon Championships in 2019 and was due to race in the finals in Sweden in 2020, but the covid-19 pandemic prevented that from taking place and so the event was moved to an alternative destination in 2021.
Despite going into the event with an injury which prevented any running for 8 weeks before the race, Katherine finished 11th in her age group against a very tough field of competition.
Carter Jonas proudly supported Katherine in her lead up to the event.
