AVR athlete Reed tackles an Aquathlon in Weymouth

Last Wednesday night Luke Reed took part in an Aquathlon at Bowleaze Cove in Weymouth, writes Dave Mutter.

The race organised by Bustinskin Events consisted of a 1000m sea swim followed by a 5k run.

Reed had a solid swim apart from taking a slight detour at the first buoy; he completed the swim in 22.03 then had a good run with a time of 19.03 giving him an overall time of 41.07 finishing fourth overall.

Then, on Sunday, Reed completed the Nello Force charity Bike ride - his first 100 miler which he completed in six hours.

This was a very well organised event with plenty of food and support around the route and a good day was had by all.
