This weekend Hartree Estates hosted the Annual Awards ceremony and triathlon masterclass for the HartreeJETS Triathlon Squad. The Squad, which is based in Edinburgh, is the brainchild of Joel Enoch and comprises triathletes from the Edinburgh area who aspire to, or currently are, representatives of Great Britain at the European or World Triathlon Age Group Championships. Their success in the last couple of years has been phenomenal with two world champions (Craig Dale and Alice Jenkins) and numerous other podium positions at British, European and World level. As their proud headline sponsor it was a pleasure for us to host the awards which paid tribute to the successes of the squad as well as providing a number of seminars and presentations on all aspects of performance enhancement for triathletes.
The ‘mystery’ guest for the weekend was none other than Tom Bishop who as a member of the British Elite Triathlete squad was ranked 7th in the world in 2017, and has been consistently in the top 10 in the world in all his international appearances. He kindly gave us an insight to his life as a professional triathlete, presented the prizes at the awards ceremony, and led a 70 km bike ride on the Sunday morning (after a 10 km warm up run!). It was a privilege, and great fun, to have these dedicated and inspirational folks at Hartree for the weekend.
