Mickey Day was first home for Freedom in 5:36, followed by Suzy Hawkins 5:44, Rob Sedgwick 6:06 and Rachel Kelly on her first attempt at the distance in 6:32. Rachel was racing in memory of a special friend and managed to raise over £2,500 for the Beating Bowel Cancer charity. 

Over at Eton Dorney nr. Windsor, Adrian Robinson raced the Duchenne UK Olympic Triathlon in aid of Muscular Dystrophy. He was very pleased in achieving his target time of 2:57:04.
