Team GB’s Leigh Pilgrim and Kerry Large won the men’s and women’s races and Anna Fake won the shorter distance, of 200m and 3km.

The Aquathlon was the third in the multi-sport series run by Hercules Events in partnership with Active Luton.

Stuart Trower, group operations manager at Active Luton, said: “Whether a novice or experienced multi-sport participant, the inaugural series of events has provided an opportunity for the local community and others to challenge themselves.”

Director of Hercules Events, Gifty Enright, said: “The multi-sport series has been a fantastic success, giving amateur athletes the chance to compete alongside some of the best in the UK. These events, which we have been running with Active Luton, have been very popular. Given the success of the first three events we can’t wait for the off-road triathlon on 1st June.”
