Fraser Cartmell, our profi from Great Britain, raced his 11. Ironman in his home country.
Here is his short summary:
“The quicker you run, the sooner this is done” … was repeated in my head many a time on Sunday. Just a shame I was far from running quick! Disappointed with my performance across the 3 disciplines in Bolton, falling far from expectation, but satisfied to get myself though the day nonetheless. Thanks to everyone who cheered for me over the day, it makes the world of difference to a race experience, no question. This was Ironman finish number 11 I believe.
After the swim on 4th place he came off the bike as 7th. During the marathon he could defend his place and crossed the finish line after 09:21h.
