Andreas Dreitz of Germany had an excellent 2:01:45 bike split that nobody could come close to equaling. He began the run with a substantial cushion and would be hard to catch.

Matt Chrabot of the USA was second fastest in 2:08:26.

As the race progressed, the lead on the run for Dreitz was over 4:30 on second place Matt Chrabot with the other nearest pursuers left with over seven minutes to make up.

The gap established on the bike course was just two much for the other pro men to overcome and Andreas Dreitz takes top spot on the podium in the Ironman 70.3 Raleigh results 2015.

For the pro women there was little doubt that Meredith Kessler would be the one to beat. Lauren Brandon can certainly swim and would most likely be near the front after the swim.

A return to 2014 form would certainly put Lauren Barnett in the mix for a podium spot. Melanie McQuaid of Canada also deserved consideration.

PRO FEMALE START LIST

Barnett, Lauren Basso, Anne Benson, Hayley Brandon, Lauren Chong, Jessica DiMichele Miller, Leslie Hering, Jackie Hinz, Bailey Huse, Sue Kessler, Meredith LaPoint, Kara Lawrence, Holly McCracken, Amelia McQuaid, Melanie Mighdoll, Michelle Patterson, Julie Roohi, Molly Snow, Caitlin Spieldenner, Jennifer Tondeur, Alexandra

It was Lauren Barnett posting the fastest bike split of the day for the pro women with her clocking of 2:18:53. Her combined swim and bike times put her in fourth place as the she began the run.

Holly Lawrence and Meredith Kessler were still neck and neck after the bike was over and held down the first two spots.

Lauren Brandon was in third and Canada’s Melanie McQuaid was in fifth and the race was on.

The rest of the field was far back.

As predicted it was Meredith Kessler taking over the lead and at the halfway point in the run.

Her lead was 1:40 over Lauren Barnett who was having a race reminiscent of 2014 when she ran herself into contention for a podium spot time after time.

Holly Lawrence of Great Britain was also racing well and was 3:52 back of the leader.

Meredith Kessler was tough on the lead and takes first place in the Ironman 70.3 Raleigh results 2015.

Lauren Barnett is back into 2014 form and had an excellent race and finished 59 seconds behind Kessler and over six minutes ahead of Caitlin Snow who won the final spot on the podium.
