Croyde Ocean Triathlon

For one of its spectators, the Croyde Ocean Triathlon was more than the typical annual trip to Putsborough Beach. For Pam Lang, the event took on greater meaning as three members of the North Devon Triathlon Club entered the race as a relay team in memory of her late husband Dave Lang. A longstanding member of the NDTC, Dave, in his time at the club, won two medals in the Croyde Ocean Triathlon, making this event all the more significant for the friends and family who gathered to commemorate his life. The aptly named “Lang’s Lads” – James Marshall, Steve Hill and Nigel Cox – came seventh in their category.
