ATHLETICS: Fine triathlon wins for Bourton Roadrunners
Updated 12:28pm Tuesday 8th July 2014 in Sport
A GROWING number of Bourton roadrunners are now competing in triathlons and Pauline and Neil Teague along with Debbie and Darren Davidson took part in the recent second race in the Castle Triathlon Series (five races held at castles in the UK, Ireland and France).
Castle Triathlon Series
This Olympic-distance triathlon was held at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire and comprised a 1,500m swim, an undulating 42k bike ride and a hilly cross country run.
Debbie and Pauline both won their age groups. Darren Davidson was delighted to finish his first Olympic distance tri and Neil also had a really good outing.
Enigma Summer Marathons
STEVE EDWARDS completed marathons No.639 and 640 at the Enigma Summer two-day event.
Amazingly – and, he claims, accidentally – he completed both marathons in identical times 3:19.17.
He is now just four marathons short of his latest goal of 400 sub-3:20 marathons.
BOURTON Roadrunners also competed in the multi-terrain Sherborne 10K.
Ewen Smith recorded yet another outstanding performance, finishing second in 37.52.
Shona Crombie-Hicks was fifth in the race and first lady in 39.54.
It was great to see Steph Lane returning from injury (first senior lady in 45.53) and Steph Holton had a determined run to finish first LV45 (48.33). Other Bourton finishers were: Catherine Wheeler (49.36); Robert Fletcher (50.55); Susan Hunt (50.56); Lynn Hudson (first LV55 in 59.31); Gary Holton (1:01.23) and Linda Edwards (1:02.34).
