There was a good turnout for the Club Aquathlon/summer social last night with many members coming to compete or cheer on their friends. The event took place at Upton Warren where club members were competing for the Howard Peters Trophies. After racing had finished club members and their friends and family stayed on to socialise and enjoy a lovely buffet.
In the adults race, relay teams and individual athletes competed over a course that consisted of a 1.2 mile run followed by a 500m swim and finishing with another 1.2 mile run.
Team Brookhouse was the first relay team home and first overall in a time of 20:56 minutes. The first male was David Jubb who also finished 2nd overall. He completed the course in 22:46 mins. The first female athlete home was Ellen Hemsworth who also finished 8th overall in a time of 26:47 mins.
However, the male and female winner of the Howard Peters Trophies is still unknown. Handicaps will be given and the two winners will be kept secret until the club dinner in February.
A shorter children’s race also took place. All of the children did exceptionally well and all received a medal for their efforts. The winner of the boy’s race was William Ruane and his sister Jodie won the girl’s race.
