A warm, dry summers evening saw the a great turnout of 38 take on the first race in the Stortford Tri Midweek Aquathlon Series 2016 at Redricks Lakes.    There were a few new faces but most had taken part in the series in previous years.

Jon Kirkbride led everyone home in 30:16, taking the male senior prize.   During the run he had overtaken swim leader Andy Bourne (Tri Sport Epping), laying down the fastest run of the night with a 19:03 5km.   Richard Thomas of Hoddeson Tri also ran strongly to move himself into second, overturning a 48sec advantage Andy had after his 10:15min swim (750m), and taking the male veteran prize.

Mel Barlow-Graham took first place in the ladies field, winning the female veteran prize, with a finish time of 36:41min (14:28 swim; 21:31 run).    She was followed home by Caz O’Haire (also Tri Sport Epping) in 39:03 and Stortford Tri’s Jenny Latham in 40:10.     The female senior category was won by Holly Nairn of Harlow Running Club, finishing fourth overall in the ladies in 40:26.

There are three further races in the series – 19th July, 23rd August, 13th September.   Online entry at EntryCentral or on the day available (+£3).

Thank you to all racers, supporters and volunteers.
