Too much heat at London Tri

6 August 2018 - By James Montgomery

On Sunday Dave Jobling took part in the London Olympic Distance Tri for the umpteenth time, based in and around Excel Centre, swimming 1500m in The Royal Victoria Dock, biking the usual 38k on the Westminster route and running 4 laps dockside and in Excel which ultimately turned out to be a long 7.1M as measured on competitor devices – kindly thrown in by the organisers over and above the usual 10k or 6.2M route just to make sure we enjoyed our time out in the sun, which he clocked at 28 degrees on leaving.

It’s a huge mass participation event over two days which Dave really enjoys and is looking forward to next year’s edition and surprises already – maybe pretty please the organisers could turn down the run distance and heat just a touch tho?

Well done Dave!
