Ironman triathlon Staffordshire

Written by on 19 July 2021

Hundreds of athletes from across the UK braved scorching temperatures yesterday to complete the gruelling Ironman 70.3 triathlon event in Staffordshire.

After a one-lap swim at Chasewater, the athletes then took the 56-mile cycle route through Staffordshire countryside. The half-marathon distance run was a two-and-a-half loop run route around the centre of Stafford, taking in the town’s Castle and finishing in the Market Square.

The race was won by Hugh Brashaw in a time of 4 hours and 7 minutes.
