Well done to all the Under 16 girls and boys who braved the coldest Easter weekend, since records began in 1960, to compete in the 25th Elmbridge Half Marathon Time Trial along the Wey Navigation. The Under 15 boys certainly showed that they were aiming for their best time, as they jostled on the start line and had to be reminded that they still had 2 minutes to go. The sun made an appearance but unfortunately couldn’t compete with the easterly winds to warm up the temperature, but with encouragement from supporters and helpers at the locks the majority completed the time trial. Many thanks must go to all the Elmbridge Canoe Club helpers on the locks and at the road sections (where the portaging crosses over roads) in the Galley, Starters, and behind the scenes making the time trial possible for the 25th time. Without these people the time trial would not be possible.
