The race itself was a river swim, tidal but still fresh water, which was unexpected and down to 16.1 degrees, so she was being held up as some kind of hero for going in in a sleeveless wetsuit when in actual fact Tracey was suffering from a shoulder injury and sleeves in a wetsuit would aggravate this.

A 750m swim was followed by a run which was mainly on road but went off road through a park and round another lake and was spectacularly beautiful.

Tracey finished a fantastic 10th in Age Group.
