Alison and Emma running at Storm the Castle

Always a good tough race for the start of the season. Not many of us doing it year, as Sam didn’t enter in time and Stuart and Andy wimped out.

But the ladies of BASC Tri are too hardcore to wimp out! We turned up, raced and Alison (as usual) got a podium spot.

This year, the final 5k run was shorten, so you run up the hill and straight into the castle rather than running around the castle.

It had been very windy the day before, and the road surface was horrible and my confidence on my race bike was pants, so I raced on my cycle cross bike. It was hard work, but I had a nice sit down, and waved to Alison and Emma as they stormed passed me. I was 10 minutes slower than last year!

Emma smashed it this year! She had excellent runs and stormed passed me on the massive hill on the bike. She has been attacking the hills in training and it showed in the race. Well done.

Alison beat her time from last year too. But didn’t win her category this year 🙁 The woman she beat last year beat her this year! But congratulations on coming 2nd.
