A beautiful summer morning. An early start at 7am. 6am registration, racking bikes, wet suits on and ready. Lovely swim in very flat calm waters of Bewl. Men set off first in one wave, followed by the women's wave a few minutes later.  A long run up a steep grassy bank to transition to take wet suits off, cycle shoes on, helmets on, number on, and off with the bike for the cycle round Kent - Wadhurst, Cousley Wood, Ticehurst and back.

Into transition, bikes racked, helmets off, change shoes, number to the front, and off on run. Down to the dam and run along below the dam wall and back across the top. Twice! (And four times for poor Sally!!)

Everyone did brilliantly. Some getting faster and faster, and better and better.  

Well done everyone. 

Claire Stafford also came to Bewl, although unable to compete, was the best supporter and photographer one could wish for.  

Sprint Distance - Swim 750m (although some say it was nearer 900); Cycle 20k all around Wadhurst, Cousley Wood, Ticehurst; Run 5k over across and back across the dam.
