Congratulations to all those Grimsby Tri members who completed the ‘ironman’ distance event last Sunday at Holme Pierrepoint-Nottingham-here’s to a well earned rest and in some cases-speedy recovery!!!
Distances were-2.4m swim-112 mile bike-26.2 mile run-with 838 official finishers
Tony Hopkins-first member home-valiant effort
Swim-1.24.41-bike-5.40.43-run-3.41.12-overall time-10.58.17-93rd place
Steve Race-excellent swim time here!!-shame about the ……-only joking
Tony Ogden-had ‘injury’ issues on the run-but Matt Clarke’s heroics at the Enduroman inspired him to keep going so well done here
Sandy Walster-withdrew from the race
Just a reminder about next Thursday’s duathlon-7pm start-2m-14m-2m-if you want to compete for the Chairmans handicap I must know that you are competing so that I can handicap the times prior to the race night start-if I do not receive notification then you are not eligible for this coveted prize. Times will be published next week to give you an indication of where you will start in relation to everyone else
