Some great performances from our club members at the weekend in Bolton – Well done to you all! Very inspiring to follow your progress this season, and to coin the very cheesy Ironman quote, ‘Anything is Possible!’
Looking forward to the race reports boys!
Quotes from the ‘Ironmen’ themselves
Paul Milburn – Well, that was a blast!!!
What a fantastic day. The support from our club members, friends and family was amazing so thank you to all. The atmosphere was electric which pushed me to the finish in a time of 13 hours 12 minutes. Very please with the time. A massive well done to Greg Bartlett and Iain Smith-Ward for smashing it!!! Role on next year Michelle J Milburn????
Iain Smith-Ward – Fantastic day yesterday. Weather was perfect before getting too hot. Support was brilliant – sorry if i ignored/didn’t acknowledge anyone, but with names on your race number it’s like everyone knows you! And is that four new Ironmen in the club? Top (if long) and tough day at the office!! UTC ROCKS!
Greg Bartlett – Well that’s it – officially an Ironman!! Very happy with 13hrs 4mins in this heat – violent swim getting knocked about amongst 2000swimmets, a hassle free bike ride peppered with hills and fog, then a hot and hilly marathon – job done that celebration beer is going to taste sooo good after a day on energy drink and flap jacks!! Massive thanks to all who send messages of support and to the UTC gang and family for their on route egging on and cheers at the finish line – made a huge difference.
