Pics: Coronation Street Triathlon team

The move of Coronation Street to MediaCityUK at the start of this year brought an altogether different challenge for the cast and crew as over 30 of them took part in the Nuffield Health Salford Triathlon on Sunday 17 August.

Cast members Krissi Bohn (Jenna Kamara), Ian Puleston Davies (Owen Armstrong) and Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw) were joined by the crew and production team to tackle their own 'wave' in one of the toughest sporting events the north west has to offer.

Krissi swam 750 metres alongside nearly 1,000 novice and more experienced triathletes in the clean waters of dock 9 in the heart of MediaCityUK...

...while team mate Ian Puleston Davies ran 5km along the iconic waterfront...

 ...and Ryan Thomas completed the Coronation Street sprint relay race with a 20km bike ride.
