Helen is Officially Awesome

Great British Walks - Winner

We are so delighted to share with you that over the weekend 5th - 7th July 2019, one of the fantastic member's of staff at Great British Walks 'Helen Colwell' completed the three disciplines of the Long Course Weekend at Tenby, Wales - part of the IRONMAN series of events across the world.

The Long Course Weekend is a fantastic sporting event which takes place in the popular seaside town of Tenby each July. Covering all the disciplines of a triathlon, the event takes place over three days, with the option to take part in the full Long Course Weekend event or to enter individual events. The swim and cycle events use the same course as Ironman Wales so this is a perfect opportunity to get a feel of area and routes for those coming back in September for Ironman.

Helen competed in all three events over The Long Weekend with her husband Paul starting with a 1.2 mile swim in the open sea around Tenby. Helen's time was a respectable 55 minutes within the Category Veteran 40+ finishing 86 out of 122 for the female athletes and overall 331 out of 419 athletes.

On the Saturday, Helen did the 42 mile road cycle race whilst Paul did the 70 mile variation. Helen finished the road cycle race in 2 hours and 59 minutes finishing 14 out of 94 in her female category and 108th out of 315 overall - absolutely brilliant! We should point out here that the countryside around Tenby is extremely hilly - so we think that make Helen's time/result even more amazing!

On the Sunday Helen did the 10K run whilst husband Paul did the Wales Half Marathon. Helen finshed her 10K in 1 hour and 2 mins - another super time.
