Leeds HR employee completes charity triathlon
Janet Lightfoot completed the Leeds Xpress Traithlon in one hour and 55 minutes – with £185 coming from the society.
The event started with a 400 metre swim in the six lane indoor pool, followed by a 23.6 kilometre cycle along the A61 and finally a 5.4 kilometre off-road run on closed roads and tracks. Janet completed these three events in 11 minutes: 52 seconds, one hour: eight minutes and 31 minutes: one second respectively.
Lightfoot said: “I knew my first triathlon would be a great challenge for me, especially having to combine all three activities, but what a great way to raise money for Breast Cancer Now.
“It’s a very personal charity to me as my mum has been affected by breast cancer, and I wanted to do something to raise funds for vital research.
“I am delighted to have raised £550 in total, and would like to thank everyone who has sponsored me and Leeds Building Society for providing matched funding.”
