Two Striders – Matt Atterbury and Andy Nicholls – made the short trip to Rutland Water for a special race on 16th August.
This one was certainly off road but thankfully not “salty”. The early morning started with a ride on the Rultand Belle across to Normanton church for the 166 swimmers followed by a 2K swim across the reservoir back to Whitwell. With a wide range of abilities, times ranged from 25:42 up to 86:00. Matt finished 66th in 40:30 with Andy 93rd in 44:00. [Andy]
