The Weymouth 70.3 Iron Man event is the biggest and most popular in the UK. This year, 2,690 entrants took part in somewhat indifferent weather conditions. Early wind and rain caused the swimming section to be delayed till 7:25am and the course was shortened, because of the choppy water. The bike race and road race sections were not affected. George Goodwin won the men’s race, in a time of 3 hours 44 minutes and 2 seconds (although the official time awarded was two seconds longer – for unknown reasons). The ladies race was won, again, by India Lee. Thousands of spectators braved the showery weather to watch and applaud competitors as they came home, along the Esplanade. Once again, the finish line was just 50 yards from Aaran Guesthouse on the Pavilion forecourt. So many events in Weymouth and most of them visible just yards from our doorstep.
