Blenheim's very own Superwoman becomes a GB AthletePosted on: 27/09/2019
Mrs Pickett, Assistant Headteacher, spent last Sunday completing a half Ironman. It was only her third, having taken the sport up last year.
Following a 1.2 mile open water swim, 56 mile cycle (in the pouring rain) and a 13.1 mile run (half marathon) Mrs Pickett was delighted to be placed second in her age group (undisclosed!) with times of 39 minutes 45 seconds for the swim, 3 hours 8 minutes for the cycle and 1 hour 51 for the run; total time (including transitions) 5 hours, 52 minutes and 27 seconds.
This qualified Mrs Pickett to represent Great Britain at the European Championships in Austria next year! A huge #teamblenheim congratulations to Mrs Pickett.
