More triathletes on the (road) run this past weekend

Chief Correspondent

In recent weeks – as we’ve done for many years here on the pages of TRI247 – we’ve been highlighting a few names familiar to the triathlon world, performing well through the domestic cross country season.

It’s not all mud at this time of year however, and I spotted a few impressive results from this past weekend on the road. Here are a few of note…

Gloucester Winter Half Marathon

Winner of the 2019 British Middle Distance Championship (HERE), Will Munday (Swansea Harriers) won in Gloucester on Sunday in a time of 1:09:57 for the Half Marathon. Full results HERE.


Folksworth 15 (miles)

More triathlon winners (plural) in Cambridgeshire, where Gill Fullen (Bedford Harriers) and Zoe Smith (Rutland Running & Triathlon Club) crossed the line together in 1:38:22 at Folksworth.

Gill of course completed what I called an Age-Group Grand Slam when winning her division in Kona in October, while Zoe Smith is another talented IRONMAN athlete and Kona finisher – she was the second quickest female amateur at IRONMAN Wales in 2017 and recorded a swift 9:56 at IRONMAN Copenhagen last year, among several notable results.

At the same event, twice Kona podium finisher Paul Lunn (Helpston Harriers) – who was part of the Specialized Zwift Academy Triathlon Team in 2019 – maintained his #fasterwithage hashtag, finishing sixth overall (1st MV45), his fastest run at a race he has run many times before:

Victoria Park January 10km

Last year Natalie Ruffell (Clapham Chasers) took third place in her Age-Group at the IRONMAN European Championship in Frankfurt – her first full-distance start. She finished second (38:29 / 38:24 chip), a little closer to home on Sunday. Full results HERE.

Of course, with events on all over the country, it’s all but impossible to keep up to date on every result, so if we’ve missed anything else of note from the triathlon-community over the past weekend, drop me an email via, and I’ll get the details updated for you.
