A huge congratulations to everyone who recently participated in Ironman Wales at Tenby – Andrea Garrington, Jan Jones, Kath Iles, James O’Flaherty, Allister Dare-Edwards, Dan Morgan, Ian Gill, Paul Ford, Rob Slaughter and Matt Edwards. What an inspiring bunch of people! Also massive thanks to everyone who turned up to support of which there are too many to name.

We aren’t a competitive bunch of people (yeah right), so to that end a massive well done to Matt Edwards our first male and Kath Isles first lady finisher in Team Pencoed. Kath’s efforts have helped raise over £1,800 towards Diabetes UK. Also a shout out for Jan who completed IMW on her birthday and had her picture tweeted by Lucy Gossage!

Our group of supporters reported that they were “absolutely exhausted” by the shouting, cheering and drinking that occurred on Sunday. We hope you have now all sufficiently recovered.

Finally the weekend saw a nomination for our very own Chairman – Mike Edwards for the Pink Jersey competition (again). Mike was checking the Ironman App to see where James ‘Fluffy’ O’Flaherty was on the bike course only to miss him as he cycled past in HiViz yellow….. classic.
