The Vitruvian
The Vitruvian 70.3 at Rutland Water on 9th Sept saw more TeamBW age group athlete success with Jo Smith completing the event after setting herself the challenge only weeks before. She managed a very creditable 6hr 42 and enjoyed the experience so much that rather than it being a one off she now has further challenges up her sleeve !
