Tom Frearson took part in the Owler Tri (70.3) and heroically managed 2nd place AG position with a time of 5:01:19, only missing out on 1st place by a minute. In his race report Tom told us that the swim was very poor with so much weed in the lake. He got stuck numerous times and had to fight the weeds to get out. This was the same for everyone but made him lose the lead and finish 6th out the water. Bike was strong and he was happy with the result, averaging 33kmph. The run was very hot and he felt it all went wrong, fully cramped 1.5km in and had 5 minutes rolling around on the floor, both quads and hamstrings. He dropped back to about 15th place and then managed to overtake 7 people when he could move again but still not at his usual pace as that caused cramps again.
