The '20' is the perfect race distance for long distance runners to test their fitness in quality race conditions as was the case at Bedford. It was a nice, flat scenic course on a mixed terrain of path, trail and grass. If you were after a PB - this was the place to do it! Freedom Tri has some excellent runners amongst its ranks. None more so than Michael Mullender who came over the line in 2:37:17; Rachel Carling in 2:40:21; Tracey Palmeiri 2:40:21; with Gareth Sharp, Liz Aitken & Sara O'Callaghan in a joint time of 4:08:55. Sara is en-route to London in April whereas Liz is in full training mode for the Pembrokeshire Ultra in May. Gareth is keeping it local and will be toeing the start line at the Milton Keynes Marathon also coming up in May. We wish them well!
