Race results and reports Canadian Ironman Rich B has just completed the Canadian Ironman (in the town of Whistler) in a fantastic 11:49:23, despite very hot conditions (31oC). So now, both Rich and Ryan have broken 12 hours for the Ironman within a month of one another. Very well done to both of them.

Back-in-a-flash 5K, Swindon, 30th July Sue was 1st lady in 20:28, but had to work hard to stay ahead of the runner-up – a very talented 14-year old lady from Highworth. HH August 2014
