Friday Night Biathlon Series 2007/2008 - Event 3 - December 7th

We had 3 more first timers this week out of a field of 13. Again it was Sarah G fastest out of the water in a very quick 7:14, with Adrian the only other one under 8 minutes (7:48). Out on the road it was scorching! It was possibly the fastest ever run leg with 3 run splits under 15 minutes and another one under 16 - Well done to Martin (14:24), Sarah G and Brendan (both 14:39) and Andrew J (15:56).

Congratulations to Sarah Greenwood whose 21:53 set a new female course record, breaking Bec Wilson's record from last year by almost a minute!

Series Results: Only 3 of this weeks competitors had a previous handicap. Everyone else was either racing for the first time this summer or was not a club member. Sarah R and Andrew J beat their Handicaps by a bit over 1% and Adrian was a bit slower than his. Martin, Gracinda, Nev and Karen all raced for the first time this season so got 5 points and an initial handicap.
It's nice and tight at the top at the moment with Adrian on 36, Sarah R and Cath on 35, and Andrew J and Dan on 33.
Remember, no points or handicaps for non-members. Here is the points score.

Well done to everyone, especially our first timers Brendan, Andrew C and Jack. Thanks to all the volunteers for helping out with timing, marshalling and keeping everyone safe out on the run course. Here are the results.

  Fastest Swim Fastest Run Fastest Outright
Females Sarah G (7:14) Sarah G (14:39) Sarah G (21:53)
