Congratulations to Blackwater Triathlon Club member Conor Bartley who competed in the Greater Manchester Marathon on Sunday the 7th of April. Conor is training for the forthcoming Ironman event in Youghal in June, and if his performance In Manchester is anything to go by, he’s well on track. Over 16,000 runners started the race on Sunday morning. The race is famous for its fast, flat and friendly route and the weather on the morning was near perfect for running. Conor, fresh from a week in Gran Canaria at the BTC Spring training camp, finished the 26 miles 791st out of the 13649 who completed the race, in an excellent time of 3:02:20. Well done to Conor and everyone else who took part on the day.
