Jon Z has already been back in open event action with appearances at the Clumber Park duathlon (run 10K - bike 40K - run 5K) and the Helmsley 10K multi-terrain race. Jon wasn't very happy with his performances but is notoriously tough on himself. Just being out there and competing (still at a good standard no matter his disappointment) is both incredible and inspirational given his artificial heart valve and pacemaker.
Rosie W has also started her open event campaign with a strong performance in the Wakefield 10K last Sunday (03/04/16). In spite of a rolling course Rose - by a matter of seconds - only just missed out on a sub-50 minute run to finish well up her age group. It wasn't for the sake of trying: that's a grimace rather than her usual smile. Pretty good going given that this event attracts some very fast athletes and boasted a field of 1,700 in total.
