Tom Hands, Sarah Farrah, Victor Ruberry and Nancy Stevens all competed in Victoria, BC, Canada on 14th June at the beautiful Elk Lake venue just on the outskirts of Victoria.

Sarah sent this report :

Tom Hands and I did the 70.3 and Nancy Stevens and Victor Ruberry did the sprint.  Worth mentioning that Nancy beat the three time Olympian overall on the sprint!

It was a great event and a lot of people asking after you and I will be recommending the trip for people next year as it was really well organized and the swim wasn’t too cold but wet suit legal.  Never been to Victoria before and it was just beautiful and great food, wine and beer post race.

Results were :

70.3 (swim : 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles, run 13.1 miles)

Tom Hands       39.38    3:14:36    2:40:44    Overall : 6:41:31   78th in 50-54 age group

Sarah Farrah    43:32    3:15:32    2:08:17    Overall : 6:12:15    48th in 40-44 age group

Sprint (swim 750 meters, bike 20km, run 5km)
