Down in Dorset, our very own Joe Richer took on the Ironman distance of Challenge Weymouth! The swim was cut short due to what can only be described as surfing conditions but Richer completed the sea swim off Peston Beach in 47 minutes.
On to the bike course which started off flat then provided a leg testing climb out of Weymouth peaking at 13%. Richer nailed the undulating route as he came back to transition in 5:36. A swift turnaround and he was on his last leg of the triathlon. The flat marathon run course challenged Richer’s determination to cross the finish line and after digging deep and pulling himself back up on the second lap of the Marathon his stride was back. Richer finished strong with a time of 3:42 for the run and producing an incredible time of 10:12:17 overall and an Ironman PB! Coming 6th in his age category and 47th out of 364 men on the day.
