Portishead Running Club held another successful Splash & Dash duathlon event.

It has been another successful year for Portishead Running Club’s Splash & Dash duathlon, which sees solo entrants, teams of two or three complete three sets of back-to-back 200m swims in Portishead’s Lido and 1.3km runs around the Lake Grounds.

Amongst those who completed at least three of the five events, the winners were - senior female solo: Yvonne Cox (average time 31.44), senior male solo: Rob Lee (32.24), Under-14 solo: Max Patterson (29.44, best time overall), team of two: Alistair Hammond and George Wallington (28.04).

The club put in a strong display in the Cribbs five-mile road race. Club captain Matt Palmer set the standard by crossing the line in 37.56, but the star performer was Judy Orme, who won the V60 category in 42.55.
