Epic Man Windermere - The toughest yet!
Sunday the 2nd June saw 3 of our IMTC athletes competing in the Epic Events Windermere Epic Man Half. This is a seriously hard event and includes over 4500 feet of climbing on the bike up some seriously hard hills followed by a half marathon on what was a trail/cross run, which itself had around a 1000 feet of climbing too.
Sarah Gohil had a brilliant race and came away with 2nd Female Vet 50 in a time of 6:34:31. A very well paced race as usual from Sarah.
Jonathan Harker was racing his first triathlon at the Epic Man. Jonathan is from a running background and has recently joined coach Chris to help develop him for IM Bolton this year.
Jonathan had a fantastic first event and finished in a time of 6:47:58, a very well executed first race and more importantly a huge positive going forwards to IM Bolton in a few weeks time.
Cara Prevet was also using this event as a warm up for an iron man. In a few weeks time Cara will be racing at the Iron Man Frankfurt and just like Jonathan, she has come away with a massive boost to her confidence after achieving a 7:07:37 finish time in what Cara described as “harder than Ironman Bolton 2018” .
Very well done to all 3 finishers and we wish them well in their coming events.
