Who were the speedy amateur athletes at IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh on Sunday?

We’ve reported on the Pro’s HERE – but how did the Age-Groupers get on in Scotland on Sunday, as M-Dot landed at IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh?

Before taking a look at all of the AG winners (listed below), lets take a quick look at the fastest athletes overall…

Starting with the women, less than a minute separated the fastest two athletes, with Anne Ewing (30-34) just 53 seconds faster than Alice Jenkins (25-29) over the “70.3 miles, minus 950 metres (swim-adjusted)” half-iron course, finishing in Holyrood Park. Anne and Alice finished 6th and 7th overall (based on times), when including the Pro athletes. Alice is no stranger to the pages of Tri247, having this year already finished as fastest British AG athlete at the ETU Middle Distance Triathlon European Championships.

For the men, a fine performance from Henry Irvine (25-29) set the 8th fastest time overall on the day courtesy of bike and run splits that were comparable to the majority of the Pro field. Henry described it as “my best ever race!”. Second fastest amateur went to the uber-consistent Chris Standidge who added yet another trophy to his haul with a win in the 35-39 division.
