Wednesday 19th April was the date, Normanby Park industrial estate was the venue with near perfect conditions for the athletes (turning a little chilly for the time keepers).
67 athletes turn out to conquer the slightly more demanding course. With a 0.9mile down hill run to warm up before turning and hitting the 0.9 mile run back up the same hill. On to the bikes for the 12.8 mile ride having to use most of the gears and negotiate some tricky little bends brings you back to the second 1 mile run, again this has a nice down hill feel but is an out and back.
With only 14 seconds separating the top four places for the men, 11 of the top 12 men running the last mile in sub 7 minutes and 1 minute 20 seconds separating 10th and 25th places this is looking like it could be a difficult year to predict.
12 ladies complete the course with Emma Watts taking the lead, a close fought battle for second and third with Sarah just edging out Vicky. Worth noting is the amazing run times put in by Kerry, with calls from her sister to have her drugs tested.
Just like to say a big thank you once again to our time keepers, Wayne and Tom, Vicky and Sandra.
3rd May back to Burringham for the first of the three handicap races.
