Simon Halley breaking the 5 hour bench mark with a finish time 4.57, and Phil Walker getting an event PB. Great swim times from everyone that competed in the Aquabike from Emma B, Chris Gloster, Mark Mayfield, Paul M, Emma W and Holly. Plus some good age group rankings on top of that. It was a perfect setting coupled with beautiful weather surrounded by fab people! What more could you want from a club team event.
