A musician and qualified lifeguard has raised more than £1,000 for charity after taking part in his first triathlon.

Steve Winter, 50, ran in the men’s Super Sprint event in London and came 65th our of 207 competitors in a time of 59 minutes and 32 seconds. The event included a 400m swim, a 10km cycle ride and a 2.5km run. He raised a total of £1002.28.

Steve said: “I had an amazing day helped by the fact it was such a well organized event. I have now got the triathlon bug and intend to do more.”

Steve, a father of two who lives in Gonerby Hill Foot, said he had run a marathon aged 18, but nothing similar until the triathlon. He decided to run for Parkinson’s UK because his father has the disease.
