Nicola Leonard travelled to Tenby, Pembrokeshire to take part in Ironman Wales, where she had to battle bad weather to complete the course.

With gusts making half the bike course into a headwind and the total times averaging 70 minutes slower than recent years, just to finish this event in these conditions was no mean feat, but this was combined with Ironman’s second toughest course.

Leonard managed to brave the elements and complete the course in 14.06:07.

Lee Skidmore completed the Vitruvian Middle distance triathlon in five hours and 44 minutes.

The first of the swims started with Glen Edwards, Danny Gearing, Cristina and Trevor Cooper swimming 5k at the Open Water Swim.

Danielle Hughes travelled up north for the Great North Run, which she completed in 1hr 54mins.
