Pro triathlete Lucy Gossage attempted her first SwimRun race in the mixed division with partner Laurence Hulatt and they placed 9th. After the race she spoke fondly of this experience.
“As someone who calls herself a poor swimmer I never thought I would have such an amazing time in a swim dominant event. SwimRun has to be one of the craziest yet most exciting sports I’ve done. I think anyone who looks at the map of what we did yesterday will think ‘that looks cool’. But it’s not just swimming and running. It’s the whole team tactics (in the top teams the male tows the female on a tether for the swim and the run), the kit selection (pretty much anything goes), the working as a team, the informality, the friendliness, the sense of exploration rather than racing and the learning to get in and out of the sea over rocks without falling!”
