On Saturday 1st September the Cotswold End of Season Standard Triathlon took place in South Cerney.  This involved a 1500m swim in Lake 62 followed by a 2 lap 40k cycle around the Cotswolds taking in some fantastic scenery which was fairly flat with a couple of gentle sloping inclines.  The race ended with a 9k lake path run.

First in for RSE was Sarah Reynolds in 2:39:31.  She was followed by;

Jess Osbourne – 2:54:21

Great effort from them all.

Mentioned in Dispatches

Normally reserved for individuals who excel during an event this weeks mentioned in dispatches goes to all the volunteers who attended the Cirencester Park Run.  In the region of 40 RSE members attended the event to carry out the roles of marshalls and pacers.  This was an outstanding turnout for the club and only goes to underline the sort of club RSE is.  Being one of the scanners I was one of the last marshalls to see some of the runners and many of them commented on how much they enjoyed the event.  In fact one of the runners stated he had taken part in park runs throughout the world and this one was one of, if not, the best so far.
