First women’s elite team was Sia Svendsen and Jacqui Allen, who won the elite women’s category in 16.36:11 and shed a few happy tears when they found out they had taken victory.

Jacqui says: “It was a huge surprise we were really quite emotional when we finally knew the result. We just kept pushing all day long and we had no idea where we were all along.”
