The event covered a 1500m swim in the Cotswold lake followed by a 41km cycle on public roads and concluding with a 10km run back around lake 32 for three gruelling loops.

Lt Col C Stuart crossed the line in fourth place, Capt M Matthews in fifth, SSgt J Du Preez in sixth, Maj A Martin in eighth, Lt S Krarup in 16th and Sgt J Du Preez in 24th.
