THREE women took the plunge, got in gear and laced up their running shoes in a fundraising triathlon.

Friends Olivia Morrad, 30, from Liphook and Jenna Daniels, 22, from Petersfield, took part in Tri Together, at Crystal Palace National Sport Centre, which is designed so that disabled and non-disabled people can take part side by side.

They completed the 400 metre swim, 15km cycle and 5km run together, crossing the finish line in one hour and 32 minutes.

Petersfield resident Sarah Tubbs also took part in the triathlon, finishing in one hour and 40 minutes.

The triathlon was in aid of Leonard Cheshire Disability.

Sarah Ball, events manager at the charity, said: ‘We are delighted that Jenna, Olivia and Sarah took part in Tri Together to raise much-needed funds for Leonard Cheshire Disability.

‘We are very proud of them and their support will help us to continue our work with disabled people at local services across the UK.’
