Biathlon 2020 non report

What we would have been doing on Saturday 12 September

Saturday 12 September would have seen the swimming club plodding and gasping and the running club splashing and gurgling in the eagerly anticipated (for some) Serpentine Biathlon.  The run and swim event was introduced in 1983 to develop relations between the Serpentine Swimming Club and the recently established, new kids on the block, Serpentine Running Club.

Since 2017 the winner of the team event has been presented with the Jan Farmer Shield.  Jan is a long term member of both the swimming and running club.
