Having met up with Kate and the children we went out to the road, to catch Adam on his return from the first short leg to the bike ride:
Now we went to have breakfast whilst we knew that our hero would be absent for about three hours. Then after 2:59:09 min the saddle, he was back in Transition to prepare for the run:
And then, he's up and running. The course consists of two unequal loops which together make up 10.5km, so are run twice:
After the first lap is looking very weary - perhaps he is anticipating the climb which starts the second lap.
Towards the end of the first loop of the second lap he looks much better
And then - the finish! Arthur joins him for the run up the funnel to the Finish and earns his own medal! Adam and his friend Jem enjoy the competitor's reward of a pint of (alcohol-free) lager
