Well what can we say? A brilliant day at Bredon's Hardwick. TTC aided by some of Kathy's Allrunners friends rallied around to provide more than enough resources to put on another fantastic event! That fickle judge that is social media has been singing the event's praises from almost as soon as it finished. Any race that finishes with burgers and beer is fine in my book. Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Oz and all other Club members etc who did us proud.

We also managed to field a few competitors too!

Nick Slim was 3rd overall and 1st Vet40 in 1:07:53, missing out on 2nd place by 5 seconds. He was followed home by a string of fine performances with Stefan (1:13), Andrew (1:15), Martin (1:16), Scott (1:17), Stuart (1:18), Brian (1:21), Claudia (1:21), Mark (1:22), Liz (1:23), Amber (1:25), Becky (1:34) and in her first event, Ann in 1:51. Meanwhile Ali met her relay partners (Ade's daughters) for the first time in transition and set The Rookies team up for a 4th place finish in 1:29 with an impressive swim.

Finally we must mention an excellent performance from a non-Club member. Kelly-Anne had been quite poorly recently. She was unsure whether she would be able to take part; but in tandem with partner Jake she successfully completed the race in a time of 2:09. True grit and determination and great support from the triathlon community!!

A round up of other recent results starts with the 113 event where Stu and Alec finished in times of 5:14 and 5:37 respectively. Unfortunately Elaine was forced to pull out after the run in extreme temperatures proved too much.

Also down in the Cotswolds, we had three female representatives in the Lake 62 Standard. Jo managed a creditable 3:02 to finish close to the top 30 in her category with Emma coming home in 3:18 followed by Kathy in 3:27.

Finally after a bit of a stop/go season the Ballards completed the Portishead Tri. A beautiful start in the open air lido unfortunately followed by a bike course that involved an awful lot of uphill for a sprint event. Julia took the family honours in 1:52 ahead of Terry in 1:56.
