Ten Letterkenny triathletes took part, Aidan Callaghan was the highest placed club member, finishing third overall behind two professional triathletes.
Aidan improved his time from last year by almost three minutes, so he can be happy that his hard work over the winter and spring is paying dividends.

Fin Begley following on from her eighth age group place in Gort, Co. Galway improved to seventh.
Club secretary Graham Parker put in a strong bike after a good swim for a very impressive performance.
