Vets Wave – River Arun Ironman Swim 2014


Another good turn out for Horsham Amphibians Triathlon – The River Arun Ironman swim is always popular and usually the fast flowing river produces lots of PBs over the 3.8km distance. This year the times looks considerably slower than in previous years so possibly the organisers struggled to get the times of the tides down to perfection. The juniors dominated both in the overall leaderboard and for HAT as well. Well done to Lily Davis for her 9th position overall and an amazing time of 58:16. Young Sarah Harris and Libby Nash also put in great first time performances over this distance.

Scores on the doors:

Lily Davis 58:16 (9th)
Mike Porteous 1:04:00 (53rd)
Sarah Harris 1:07:03 (80th)

My first blog (Journey to Ironman Austria) followed my journey to become an ironman finisher - the training, the time commitment, the support and coaching, the events in between - all the 'highs and lows!'. The subsequent blog (Tri Hard Training) continues with my training and love for the sport.
