ORGANISERS of the first ever West Wight Quarathlon have hailed the event as a huge success.
A 12km cycle, 6 mile kayak, 4.5km run and a 600 metre swim made up the event, which started and ended at the West Wight Sports Centre.
Plans are already underway for 2013 to team up with the The Needles Half Marathon and the West Wight Triathlon to create a truly amazing sporting event for the West Wight region.
The overall winner with an incredible time of 2hrs 15 mins was Matt Trautman. A video of the event can be found below, supplied by www.wightvid.com.
