Marshman half results
Race report from Val Place:
A popular Half-Iron distance race. Swim a letter "M" course in the shallow, clean water of Lake 1 with safety canoes, straight into transition. A mostly flat bike route via Ashford, Tenterden, Appledore, Rye, gorgeous! A flat run round Lydd & countryside to finish.
A group of us headed to Lydd go take part in the 2016 Marshman i half ironman distance weather was dry for most part but cool.
Great results from Sam Begg who lead the swim punctured on bike and regained the lead on the run winning in a great time 4.18 for his first ever half Iron distance.
Val took the overall ladies Trophy in 5.22
Good racing and times by Allan and Richard. Claire Edwards having a great swim and bike pulled out of the run not feeling too good but a good training session.
I would recommend this race to anyone wanting to try out the longer distance event - and you get wine if you win!
