Maratona dles Dolomites

This weekend we have had an interesting mix of Events attended by club members. A late result which came through last week after we had posted to the WWW. Luke Pardoe also raced at Bala with our guys having a bit of a mare getting results from Stuweb but came home in 2.09 and 74th position. Well done Luke.

This weekend Matt Cooper made the journey to Ironman Austria Smashing it with a finishing time of 10.06 Swim 1.15, Bike 5.19 and the Marathon in 3.22. Brilliant result there Matt well done.

Ed Bolland was in Romania for the ETU Middle Distance European Championships. Ed had a crash free bike this time I think bringing his shiny new bike back in one piece and placed 24th position in the 50-54 Age group with a time of 5.11.

Next up we had Ashley (Race every weekend) Kirkham and Rob Charlesworth racing half iron distance at Outlaw Holkham. Ashley beat his PB with a 5.53 an hour quicker than last year. Rob racing for the first time at this distance finished in 6.29. Excellent work guys.

Hannah Louise raced to beat the tide at Aberdovey swimming an out and back 4k. Hannah a great swimmer found in lane 1 finished in first place. Excellent another top result Hannah.

Several members of the club Including Louise Westbury, Clare O’Kane, Cheryl Blewitt, Tim Blewitt, Matt Price, Ed Hawkins, Paul Silk, Paul Gamston, Martin Dodd and Dave Evans made the journey to Italy for the Maratona dles Dolomites. Everyone made the journey to Italy in a variety of ways with some even missing flights to spice it up a bit. I’ve heard no bad news stories so I’m hopeful all completed without incident.

That’s it for this week

Keep the results coming in please.
