The only other race news I have had is 'Multi-sport' Quadrathlon
Jean Ashley has had a very busy September, winning Overall W. at 'Shrewsbury Sprint Quad' at the start of the month (600m River swim, 5km kayak, 24km bike and 5km run). The following weekend she raced at the 'Fabian 4 Dyffryn Conwy Mountain Challenge' this was a 13km estuary kayak (Conwy Ascent course) followed by a very tough 14km mountain run and finally at 20km MTBike around the hills trails and streams of Betws-y-Coed Forest, after really hard long race she finished 4th (1st V50). Last weekend she raced in Bude Quadrathlon, Cornwall (1500km swim, 40km bike, 10km kayak and 10km run) having raced this course 8 times before she flew round, the stunning calm weather enabled her to get a PB and she won Ladies overall.
