Box End Quadrathlon – 2019 British Championships

With only a couple of weeks between races there was barely enough time to recover from Dearne Valley before I was off to the British Championships at Box End. Last year Anna and I had made a weekend of it and it was a gorgeous sunny weekend with really warm water temperatures and a good...
