The penultimate race in the 2014/15 Hampshire Road Race League took place on Sunday. Totton just about managed to field both a men's and ladies' team with Aaron Teather-Lovejoy the only member present from last week's expedition to Alton.
There was a lot of muttering pre-race about whether the three lap course with it's shallow inclines was going to deliver any fast times, but both Paul Bullen and Aaron Teather-Lovejoy managed to get new personal bests.
The full results of our team are show below;
Paul Bullen - 00:40:08
Aaron Teather-Lovejoy - 00:42:53
Dave Ransom - 00:44:37
Paul Hibberd - 00:45:21
Anthony Mostran - 00:48:26
Sonia Cluitt - 00:53:28
Kirsty Joisce - 00:56:02
Farah Hibberd - 01:02:52
Meanwhile in Barcelona, we had another Half Ironman result, this time from the irrepressible Alice Burch. In her own words...
"I finished in just over 4 minutes faster than the Weymouth Challenge (6.44 hours) which was my target as well as coming here for experience and confidence in the run up to the full IM in August. So a PB for me!"
Alice's full times are shown below;
Swim (1.2 miles) - 00:53:16
Bike (56 miles) - 03:44:17
Run (13.1 miles) - 01:58:44
Total (70.3 miles) - 06:44:35
