I fumbled my watch and accidentally stopped the Tri activity after the swim. So this forms the swim section and the other moves for this day form the other parts.
So I completed the whole thing in a shade over 1h 30m. I finished 50th out of 108 (19th in my category). The distances and times, including transitions were: 750m swim (0.5miles) = 19min 31secs Transition 1 = 3mins 29secs 21km cycle (13miles) = 44mins 18secs Transition 2 = 1min 7secs 5km run (3miles) = 22mins 12secs
