Hyde stakes for runners and swimmers

07 Sep 2019

It was another one of those splendid mornings that Serpentine swimmers are fond of, blue skies and cooling Autumnal waters and a meeting with our good neighbours, the Serpentine Running Club. At stake was who was the best runner and swimmer of the two clubs. 

As it happened, Serpentine SC’s Tom Elliott and Fran Lou proved to be the best, as they were individual winners of the club’s biathlon on Saturday 7 September. The annual biathlon, co-hosted with Serpentine running club, provides a chance for members of either club to prove who is the best runner and swimmer combined.
