Cotswold Classic Middle Distance Triathlon 21st August 2016
Seven members of the club entered this late season race this year. We regularly swim in this lake so we know it well - This year there were additional problems caused by the lack of rain, and the swim course had to be changed on the day of the race due to the low water level. Even with this change, there were some parts of the course which were so shallow that we had to walk them
The bike route had been altered this year due to narrow roads causing problems on previous years. The route was 2 laps on mainly flat roads (with a couple of hills to stretch the legs and lungs a bit) but was tough due to the strong wind on the day. Due to a crash, at one point we had to get off the bikes and walk past the ambulance attending the rider.
The half marathon run was on a mixture of road and paths - There had been some recent rain but the paths did not require us to wear trail shoes.
With the exception of Beckie (who had a great race until having to pull out on the run) everyone finished and there were some great times put in, especially storming runs from Andy and John
