Did the race in 2019
Superb event very well organised and support from locals was amazing will be back next year to do the full LCW.I also completed the 2.4 mile swim on the Friday evening but my result was showing as time query which is a pity as I know I successfully completed the course in just over 1hr 20 mins recorded on my garmin. I’m guessing this may be an issue with the chip but as I wasn’t doing full lcw was not overly worried. Great event and will be highly recommending
