A quick summary of my first look through the results for the Half today. Will flesh out later but I know that some of you won’t be able to sleep until you know how the day compared to previous years.

Firstly – the overall averages across the years the event has been running

At first glance it looks like this year was slower than last year, all thanks to the slower bike conditions.

However, if we then look at repeat offender analysis the picture changes a little:

It turns out that yes, the ride was a little slower than last year. But the swim and run were sufficiently faster that it was a day to equal the best conditions encountered here.
