As mentioned in Saturday's run brief, our own David Loader has qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Austria next year. Way to go, David! And, as we were enjoying our post run coffee on Saturday, another one of our parkrunners, Alan Burton, was racking his bike at Ironman Western Australia. He completed his 4th Ironman on Sunday with a fantastic result - 265 overall with a time of 10:35:30.
We're very proud of you guys!
