Summer holidays must be here–there was a huge turnout for this week’s race. In total 51 folks started the event. They ranged from veterans to newbies and even included a few very welcome tourists–and a surprising number of South African accents could be heard.

This week the junior camp is being run at Clearwater by Steve Trew. Steve must be doing something right, as always, because the juniors did a wonderful job in the race. Youngsters Nick Pilgrim and Yannick Hillier filled the first two places. A team comprising Ian “BBQ King” Pilgrim and Sam “Cute Kids” Naude was third, while the third placed individual was Byron Rencken. An honourable mention goes to another youngster (at heart), Kent Richardson in fourth.

Megan Hands finished first in the female race, followed by Lynsey Palmer and Laura Hope. All three are fast improving and beginning to do really well in the longer races.

Manning Smith was first in the shorter race.
In general the results seemed fast, mainly due to great conditions. (It helped that I ensured that the swim leg started in the traditional place. There had been some suggestions that Ian P–a strong swimmer–may have been lengthening the swim while I was away, to gain an edge over strong runner, less strong swimmer Otis. Inconceivable. Ian is as honest as the day is long. Even if he is a lawyer.)

You can find the full results below and in the attached spreadsheet. Apologies for any incorrect names or results–feel welcome to point them out to me, if it matters to you, at alan@logic.bm.

Big thank yous go to:
  • Ian Pilgrim for opening up the hut, starting set up, placing the swim buoy, helping me to keep the names straight as athletes finished, arranging a great BBQ, excellent coaching/parenting of this week’s winner, and generally being a good egg
  • Liz and Tim Southern, for keeping the athletes safe during the bike leg
  • Tim Palmer, for bringing the swim buoy back, helping at the finish and an expert job at the BBQ
  • Dawn Johnson, our comeback queen, for help during registration.
  • Richard Hammond and Keith Robinson for “over and above” help putting racks away
  • and everyone else who pitched in to help
