6 MBH members raced the Falmouth aquathlon organised by votwo. Matty Stokeld finished 4th, Brooksy (who swims like a fish) was first vet back followed by yours truly, then came Mark W, Paul Hooper and that race junky Yvonne T, who ran Thursday lunchtime, 10 mile cycling time trial in the evening, Meet Your Max race last night and this today (you need time to rest Yvonne, recovery is part of the training!!)
votwo staged 2 events today with a novice race (400m swim & 4K run) off at 3 and the main race at 4.20
The main race consisted of a 1 mile swim, a 2 lap clockwise affair off Gyllingvase beach followed by a 10k run, again a 2 lapper from the beach, up and around Pendennis castle – The second ‘lap’ of the swim seemed a little more ‘lumpy’ than the first (although nothing really to worry most swimmers), and sighting the red flags sometimes confused with the red lifeguard canoists, onto the beach for a sandy transition and out onto the run – a well timed heavy shower helped cool things a little on the run.
The race was won by local Nathan Jolly, full results and times are promised to be on the votwo website before the end of the night – next years event has been promised an additional £75 for the 1st male and female!
Get that training in!!!
Next week – Sticker 5 on Saturday evening and Bude triathlon on Sunday
I wonder if Yvonne has entered?
