Strong Performances at 70.3 UK

Catriona Morrison took the lead in the run at UK 70.3 to claim the women's title. Morrison found herself chasing Julie Dibens as she started the run. Dibens led the way out of the water in her blueseventy Helix and remained in front through the ride but wasn't able to hold off Morrison during the run. Rounding out the top three in the women's race was Bella Bayliss, fresh off a successful defence of Ironman Lanzarote just a few weeks ago.
On the men's side, Philip Graves blasted to the front of the race during the ride and never looked back as he took the men's title at Ironman 70.3 UK. Graves posted the fastest swim of the day, leaving the water with fellow blueseventy athletes Stephan Bayliss and Bayliss Anderson. Graves rode four minutes faster than the rest of his competition over the challenging Wimbleball bike course and never looked back as he held off both Bayliss and Cartnell for the win.
