Rye and Wade take the tape in final Triathlon England Championship of the season


Established in 2003, the Vitruvian started from humble beginnings and less than 250 starters in its first year. Since then the Vitruvian has grown into a respected and iconic race on the UK calendar.

The Vitruvian Triathlona well-loved event on the triathlon calendar organised by Pace Setter Events, hosted the 2018 Triathlon England Middle-Distance Triathlon National Championships, the fifth and final TE champs of the season.

Set to the East of Leicestershire, the location of Rutland Water provides a challenging and stunning setting for a middle-distance triathlon, with a dynamic bike course and flat run route. Race conditions were cool, bright and at times a bit breezy as some quick times were laid down over the 1.9km Swim, 85km Bike and 21km run.

Sam Wade backed up British Middle Distance title completing the course in 3:48:31 to take the men's overall win ahead of Mark Matthews (3:50:03) and Will Munday (3:53:06) who each won their respective age-groups.

Katrina Rye topped the women's overall podium in a time of 4:15:38 after putting down the fastest female bike split of the day, edging out fellow F25-29 competitor Rosie Wild (4:21:49) and Michelle Willcocks (4:29:02) who claimed the F30-34 crown.
