Not sure why Miles is down as DSQ (possibly not triggering one of the timing mats). Congratulations to Gareth and Mike for the top spots on the table and ‘best effort’ prize to Chris who didn’t give up despite having bad cramp for most of the run (marathon time was longer than bike time!)

On a personal note thanks for all the support from the ‘other halves’ and from the half-distance boys who were there at the end to support the rest of the team.
