Last Sunday’s IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire saw around 1,700 athletes head to the West Midlands to race in the first UK M-Dot race of the 2022 season. As with the 2021 edition, this was an age-group only race.

There was just 11 seconds difference in the women’s race between the fastest athlete overall, Anna Lawson (25-29), and second placed Emily Freeman (30-34). Anna won the full distance IronBourne Triathlon last year, while Emily was recently announced as a member of the Zwift Academy Tri team for 2022.

With great thanks to Huw Fairclough (www.huwfaircloughphotography.co.uk) / IRONMAN – we’ve got pictures from the awards collection post-race on Sunday of the podium finishers.

We would also like to take this opportunity to pass on our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Andy Hey, who tragically died after requiring emergency medical attention during the swim portion of the race. A fundraising page has been set up to help support his wife and children during this incredibly difficult time.
