Alex Pilgrim race result and more on Erica Hawley’s race

Junior Alex Pilgrim produced an excellent performance today, Sunday 4th May, against a strong field in Richmond VA in the USA Triathlon 13-15 Youth Elite Series race. Alex placed 13th out of a field of over 80 starters in 32 mins and 46 secs producing the 8th fastest run to move from around 25th after the bike. Alex only turned 13 in March so has 2 more years in this age group so his performance against many of the USA’s best youth triathletes was even more impressive. He was the 2nd 13 year old to finish and was just over 2 mins behind 15 year old winner Ricardo Reyes of the USA.
