Richard reports on the race:

This event is a World Championship Qualifier and if you can finish in the top 10 in your age category then you stand a very good chance of qualifying (as there were only 10 in the 55-59 category....) 
Due to road works being set up Friday afternoon (without letting anyone know), the organisers had to make some very last minute changes to the cycle route - so it was probably nearer 37k.  Not sure why the run course was 'short'  but I would love to have done 10k in 33 minutes !   Lets just say it was between 5 and 5.5 miles.  I really must work on my transitions as I lost 2nd place fiddling about with shoes and kit.  
Having said that it was a great race and all set within National Trust land and picturesque Sherwood Forest
