Richard Stannard reports from the second OWS Aquathlon Series event of the year, which took place on Saturday 30th May at The Triathlon Training Centre in Little Marlow.


OWS Aquathlon Race 2 - 30th May 2015

A low mist on the lake greeted the first swimmers as they entered the water for their morning swim at the Triathlon Training Centre in Little Marlow. By the time the aquathletes were on the start line over an hour later, the lake was basking in sunshine on the most stunning morning of the season so far.

With the water temperature rising, it was Austin Swain (50+) who lead out of the water in 10:57, however nursing his plantar fascia on only his second run in eight weeks, he was always going to be vulnerable on the fast and flat 5km run. Next to emerge from the still waters was Lucas Boardman (Junior) in a time of 12:03, some 40 seconds faster than his previous best. Not far behind Lucas was Clark Schofield 12:19 who looked strong going on to the run. First women out of the water and through transition was Louise Fox, taking a break from XTERRA tour racing.

Out on the run and Austin's lead was rapidly being eaten away by both Clark and Louise. Clarke, who had cycled to the race, managed to hold on for victory with a great 18:12 5km run. Louise, who could see Clark ahead but could not manage to close the gap, crossed the line in second place overall and first female with a great 18:26 run. Lucas ran a PB (21:58) to win the junior race showing his father Greg Boardman a clean pair of heels in the process.

A special mention must go to our many first timer aquathletes and those tackling their maiden race at the Triathlon Training Centre. The OWS aquathlon series provides a great opportunity to experience the race environment, in a friendly relaxed setting.
