Triathlon and Half Marathon achievements

Gary Malliband has been in action twice in the last month – firstly in the Nottingham 70.3 triathlon (postponed from 2020) after a long wait due to covid and a lot of training Gary was finally able to take part in the event which consisted of a 1900m swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run. After a weather forecast that predicted a wet race it actually turned out to be mainly dry and Gary recorded a personal best for that distance covering the course (and its amended and rather large transition area) in 5:16:40.

Two weeks later Gary was back in action after a last minute entry into the Holkham Half Marathon. The race was held in the beautiful grounds of Holkham Hall and included off road, paths and undulations. Gary clocked another personal best for that distance of 1:36:35 and finished a very impressive 3rd in his age group.
