Despite some very dubious looking weather forecasts all week - and the memories of the 2014 event fresh in the mind in that regard - the 2015 edition of Tri Liverpool was a big success yesterday.

The vast majority of athletes racing in the British Triathlon Age-Group Championships over the Standard distance from 7 a.m. would have had a dry race... with those racing later on in the morning in the Sprint, Beginner and Elite races, getting a little damp!

We've brought you a report on the Elite British Championship races separately, won by Sophie Coldwell and Morgan Davies, and here we have some images from the day.


Elite Races

Sophie Codwell makes a quick exit from T2 to make the most of her bike breakaway margin earned with Jessica Learmonth.

The smile of success - Coldwell reached the finish line outside of the Echo Arena 28 seconds clear of second placed Emma Pallant.

In the men's event, a large group reached T2 together including eventual winner Morgan Davies.

Australia's Brendan Sexton won here two years ago, and for a while, it looked like he might repeat that but Morgan Davies was having a great day.

Age Group and Celebrities

There was a big Age-Group entry for the event too, across Standard, Sprint and Beginner distances.

Tri Liverpool was also supporting the #ThisGirlCan campaign.

BBC Breakfast's Louise Minchin raced in the Sprint distance event - and will be a member for the GB Age-Group team in Chicago at the World Championships.

"What an amazing course – I've never done a race in salty water and had completely forgotten about it here, so that was a shock! My Great Great Great Great Grandfather came from Liverpool and used to work in the docks here, so I was cycling past the Liver Building, thinking of that. It was a great atmosphere out there – really fantastic."

Craig completed the Sprint distance event in 1:39:53. "It was brilliant – very, very wet. Although, the wet weather wasn't that bad, as you're already wet from the swim! It was the wind that I found the hardest today. When you go past the docks and the wind comes sailing through, I had to knock my bike down two gears just to carry on!

"There was great support. Anything we do here in Liverpool, we always get the community behind us and it really helps. They were cheering everyone on and that gives you a great boost. Next year I'm going to do the full Olympic distance."

The spectators dealt admirably with the conditions.
