Bedford Harriers A.C.
This was the first outing of the brand spanking new Harriers Tri kit and we
are now well and truly on the map (well you cant miss the striking black and
gold), Angie even painted her toe and finger nails to match ! The race
attracted competitors from many well established Triathlon clubs and the
Harriers put in some excellent performances to get amongst them. Following a
running injury Simon Fawcett has found a new lease in life, finishing well up in
this, his first Triathlon - there's no stopping him now ! The pool swim was
late starting but the handicapping (slowest go first) generally worked well.
Conditions on the bike were not ideal and we had to cope with a strong and cold
northerly wind all the way out to Felmersham. It didnt seem to be any easier on
the way back. The 2.5 laps of the park for the run were much easier as the park
is well sheltered. Thanks to all the supporters all the way round the course.
