About 60 in total set off around the course for this first race in the mid-week series - so a nice gentle opener in what could be described as one of the first half-decent spring evenings we have had.
Don't however think that this is normal - usually its a 200 person race - did perhaps the football keep you all at home ? It's blown your chances of being the series winner if it did ! It's anticipated that the next races will be full , so don't hang about in getting your entry in on the F3 website.
Only the one casualty on the bike and a lot of road rash - we all wish him well in getting fully recovered. The swim seemed to go down well enough, although the exit mat provided it's own hazards... some were more graceful than others on the exit.
lighting was fantastic when the sun shone through, and the backdrop of the lake and the course makes for some special pictures.
So go and check out the pictures - with such a small entry list for this one you've basically had your own photoshoot - there won't be so much choice at the next one so get them whilst they're hot !
until next time
p.s. this Sunday is the busiest day in our race calendar -with five events across the south of England. If you're at Bognor 10k, Staines 10k, Ranelagh Half Marathon, Oxford Town and Gown 10k, or the EgTri - have a good race and I look forwards to seeing you on the other side when it's all over !!
