Quite a few of the team took part in the Dubai International Triathlon on 7th November 2014, which was the first half ironman distance race in Dubai orgainsed by ME events who are doing a splendid job on the local race scene. The start and finish was at the Atlantis Hotel on Palm Jumeirah. The 1.9km non-wetsuit swim was in jellyfish free waters, the 90km bike course took in a breezy 3 loops heading from the Plam to out to Sports City and the 21km run went 2 x along the North crescent and it was a scorcher!
Notable results of the day:
Zoe Cresswell had a great result in her first half distance, placing 2nd F 30-34 (4:59:08) and Marci Moo also had a great day out placing 6th F 40-44 (5:44:25)
Other racers included Jimmy Cresswell (2:13:42) Andy Veall (6:23:13), Q (DNF), [Ben Walton, Clipboard, Chocolate Karl – team entry], [Dieter & Claire – team entry].
