Next it was time for the furthest distance race – 1500m. Zoe came in before her other team members being placed 6th in her Alevin category, with a time of 26:40.
Shortly followed by Skye, a year younger , but in the same category with a time of 29:00. Next in was Vicki Connolly in theWomen’s Masters 50+ category. Vicki won 1st place for her category. Teammate Beryl Altabas came in 5th in the same category with a time 36:15.
Well done to all – looking forward to the next season starting in September.
