THE RACE-pro males

Andy Potts led the way in the swim, but by only 2 seconds over Brian Fleischmann. There was actually a group of six within 11 seconds of each other including James Seear, Terenzo Bozzone, Greg Bennett, and Joe Umphenour.

It soon became clear that the run would decide the race as is usually the case with so many exceptional cyclists.

There would be no break-away with Andy Potts, Leon Griffin, Terenzo Bozzone, Greg Bennett, James Seear, and Brian Fleischmann all exiting the bike/run transition virtually together.

Even after almost ten miles of the run it was anybody’s race with Potts, Griffin, and Bozzone jockeyed for position at the front.

However it was Andy Potts who prevailed and who takes top spot in the Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga results 2015.

She was 21 seconds ahead of Jackie Hering and 29 seconds ahead of Ashley Clifford.

Nina Kraft was 55 seconds back of the leader and the rest of the field was three minutes or more behind and had some work to do in order to catch up.

Much like the men’s race Cleaver, Clifford and Hering battled at the front of the pack and entered the second transition together and the race was on as they began the 13.1-mile run.

It was Clifford holding a short lead of 18 seconds over Hering after two loops of the run and they were virtually alone at the front with Kelly Fillnow almost four minutes back in third place.

With three miles left to run Ashley Clifford held a 30 second lead over Jackie Hering with the rest of the field far back and Kelly Fillnow still holding down the final spot on the podium.

Ashley Clifford hangs on and is the winner of the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga in a winning time of 04:20:33.
