From pdsportsmanagement, this event (swim 1,500 m river / bike 42km / run 10km) was won by Richard Anderson in 2.06.16.
OAC’s Racheal Bamford finished 23rd (and second lady) in 2.21.48.
OAC’s Ian Fisher was one of 39 elite club runners who completed this morning’s controlled test event around next year’s London Olympics Marathon route.
A full report in The Telegraph.
Ian comments, “It consisted of one two mile lap followed by three big laps between the start on the Mall and the Tower of London, with the pack finishing together in 2.57.44, although it was hard to hold back”.
The Marathon test event started at 6am ahead of the BUPA London 10,000m.
For OAC, Liam Dunne finished ninth (43.50), Phil Robinson 95th (55.18), Matthew Broughton 99th (55.47), Tom Potter 107th (56.480, Billy Rayner 139th (59.42), Caron Ralph 149th (60.24) and Sara Richard 198th (64.42).

Well, Laura Martin and I completed this amazing test of fitness and nerve.
Won by Ed Tressider (Dark Peak) in 3:21:51, I finished 172nd (6:13:29) and Laura was ahead of me in 144th overall (5:44:00). The first lady was Sarah Ridgway (Eryri) in 30th position (4:02:29).
Very windy and wet under foot but remarkably we had visibility all the way round – didn’t need the map (this was a definite help).
Went in the bog twice up to my waist and there were two very deep river crossings but got back.
This is a superb trip out but not one to under-estimate. Fantastic Island, friendly locals and a great scene all camping on the hotel lawn, next to the distillery (nice whisky too).
Laura and I were very nervous about this race and ran together for the first half, then Laura went off and I chased along behind.
The climbs were huge – seven mountains and full on crawling, then there were the scree descents and a three mile road run to finish.
Another one I am glad to have done! – but maybe next year….

The race also included the latest monthly Club Handicap.
Finishing in the top 10 & I think the highest ever position for a woman in the harrogate league? Racheal was a clear winner of the handicap. Carol’s overall lead in the handicap table was reduced to 9 points with Ben in second. 2011 Handicap Table here

An approximately 10k multi terrain race with results from ukresults showing the race was won by Carl Thackery (Hallamshire Harriers) in 34.44 and the first lady finishing 29th overall was Donna Edmondson-Booker (Idle A.C.) in 39.53.
An unfortunate clash with a Harrogate League race meant only OAC’s Ged Peacock was in the race, finishing 247th (52.33).
