Two Striders kicked off the year with this early season aquathlon as part of The Medway Big Splash. Glenn Davies and Teresa Watson completed the pool based 500m swim followed by a 5000m run around the Medway Park track. Glenn came in in a time of 29.04 placing him 9th out of 38 participlants. Teresa crossed the line in 44.46 placing her 35th in the field.
Two striders battled it out in the midweek aquathlon held at Leybourne Lakes on Wednesday, 9 May. Matt Nunn and Neil Hacon were amongst the 26 entries competing in the 750m swim which was followed by a 5km run.
Matt finished the swim in 12.04 minutes with Neil coming out the water in 14.28. Both had relatively swift transitions before taking to the run course.
Neil made up much of the lost swim time on the run finishing the 5km in 20.30 however Matt was able to hold him off with a 22.07. Matt finished in 7th in 35.06 and Neil 8th in 36.10.
After the event Matt said: “Overall I’m happy with the result as I didn’t think the swim had gone particularly well. It’s a solid enough start to the tri season and something to build on.”
