The 26th annual St Ives Biathlon has come to end - and the results are now in.

It took place on Saturday, June 22, with hundreds enjoying the popular event.

Over 230 competitors across varied age groups participated, from places as far away as London, Surrey, and Southampton.

Younger competitors also displayed impressive performances.

Finley Jeffrey and Daisy Leigh were victors in the male and female junior categories, while Team Knights led in the Junior Teams.

In the Novice Race, Joshua Hoggett-Crisp and Robyn Coatsworth were triumphant.

The Vet Race, for participants aged 40 and above, was won by David Green and Anna Harrold; and the Super Vets (50+ years) winners were Matt Leigh and Janet Haynes.

The event’s age demographics showed a significant increase in participants over 60 and in light of this, the club is planning to introduce a new Super Vet+ age category for 2025.

Chris Simpson, chair of St Ives Surf Life Saving Club and Biathlon Event lead said: "Hundreds of people enjoyed this year’s Biathlon both in and out of the water.

"This is thanks to many local organisations who support us in organising the event and keeping people safe whilst participating."

Mr Simpson added: "Alongside the phenomenal support we receive in organising and hosting the event, we are also reliant on the generosity of local businesses who sponsor it and donate gifts in kind, so that we can meet growing costs, whilst also raising vital funds for our club."

Steve Kenward, associate director at Penwith College, noted: "Penwith College prides itself on being a key part of the West Cornwall community and by supporting events such as the St Ives Biathlon we can really bring that community involvement alive."

The biathlon culminated in a 1.5-mile swimming leg returning to the harbour slipway, following a 1.5-mile run which started from the Fishermen’s Lodge in the harbour.
