Twenty seven hardy people were not put off by the heavy rain showers of the day and took the water in our first aquathlon of the season at Redricks Lakes. Weather was largely dry for the race in the end (one shower during the run for some) but was chillier than might be expected for late May. Nonetheless everyone seemed to have a good time, even the marshals stuck in the rain who sent in a pic – wet but still smiling.
At the head of the race George Cook (Tri Sport Epping) came out to the water in third, but ran down both Lucy Charles and Reece Barclay of Hoddesdon Tri to steal first place. Reece followed him home for second place overall, with Lucy taking third and first female. Kevin Partridge (Tri Sport Epping) held onto his fourth place on the swim exit for fourth place overall and in the male vet category. First female vet place went to Karen Cole of RG Active Race Team. Congratulations to them and to all finishers.
