Katie came past the finish line in 7hours 37min with her dad further afield.

The club’s fastest athlete was Josephine Child, who notched up a time of 5.56 in her maiden Ironman to finish 23rd.

Ruth Thom was a minute behind Josephine, and Mark Jacobs strolled home afterwards.

Elsewhere, Toby Gowers completed his first race of the season at Olympic distance Windsor triathlon.
