3 JJs, Emma Curtis, Jayne Oswald and Andrew Heide and 2 former members, Rob Kingston and Louise Mcleman were met with a torrential downpour or a British monsoon, so it meant the Steelman Triathlon converted into a swim-run / aquathlon. With the bike being cancelled some of those more passionate about running celebrated, and Jayne got changed into her wetsuit even quicker. Whereas Robbie & Louise were a bit dampened by the decision, no pun intended.

The JJs took to the 2-lap Swim, followed by a 2-lap run course which was 50% slip and slide mud mixed with 50% gravel and road. Not the conditions for running PBs however Louise and Emma defied the conditions and ran their hearts out for two HM PBs.
