Steven Bowdery, Jemma Redhead and Nigel Banyard raced in Wisbech.

TRIATHLON: Three members of King’s Lynn Triathlon Club were in action at the Fen 10, a 10-mile run through Wisbech. 

Steven Bowdery had been taking a break since he smashed the Ironman in Wales in September and this marked the start of his winter training, as he crossed the line in an impressive 1.23.02. 

Jemma Redhead, who had also cut back on her training recently, knew she would struggle but after a slow start, she sighted team mate Nigel Banyard ahead in the distance and made it her mission to catch him. With only 600 metres to the finish line, Banyard spotted Redhead about to catch up and picked up the pace. 

Banyard finished in 1.42.01 and Redhead finished with a personal best time of 1.42.28.

Further afield, Paul and Victoria Dunthorne took part in a picturesque 10km run in Venice, crossing 14 bridges, including a floating pontoon over the Grand Canal built especially for the event. 

Paul finished in 52.25 with Victoria combining running and sightseeing to finish in 1hr 32min.

The club soon start their winter training and many sessions are available to non-members. For details, visit the website.
