Sporty Spice Melanie C gets in some last minute swim training ahead of the Shock  Absorber Women Only Triathlon

A perfect fit: A women only sporting event for Spice Girls’ Sporty Spice

Spice Girls’ Melanie C has taken advantage of some last minute swim training this week with Human Race’s official training partner, RG Active.

Human Race who organise the Shock Absorber Women Only Triathlon are the UK’s largest organiser of mass participation sports events in the UK.
Melanie was delighted for the opportunity to boost her training at Hampstead Ponds this week ahead of Sunday’s sprint distance race.
She said: “I’m so excited to take part in the triathlon this weekend. Training for a triathlon is such a great goal to aim for and I have enjoyed all the training so far. I’m looking forward to joining the hundreds of women who are taking part this weekend.”
Melanie C who is a fan of Human Race’s Women Only events continued: “series is a fantastic celebration of women in sport. It allows ladies to compete in an environment which is encouraging and fun. Women contribute so much to the world of sport and these events offer a chance for all women to get involved regardless of their age or ability.”
The Shock Absorber Women Only triathlon is perfect for first time triathletes as it offers a novice distance (250m swim, 5k bike and 2.5k run) and takes place in an environment which is not intimidating for first-timers.
