A good turnout on a chilly morning for the off road Duathlon at Barnetby organised by Dan.
The mileage is still currently being debated as “country miles” are very different to normal miles. However the course was roughly just under a 4 mile run, a 10 mile mountain bike followed by just under a 2 mile run. The course was wet, muddy and hilly.
It was great to see a number of new faces to multisport and for a number of other competitors is was their first outing in an off road duathlon, not any off road duathlon I might add, this was one of Dan Broughton’s off road Duathlons, very challenging, but everyone set off and returned in high spirits.
Duncan Wright came home first in a great time of 1:27:30 taking fastest time on each of the 3 disciplines in the race, sorry competitive training.
Second was Rob Wood who unfortunately had suffered from a puncture towards the end of the bike course, not wanting to loose too much time he peddled on and with a strong run finished only 3 mins 10 sec behind Dunc, it could have been a tasty run finish without that bad luck.
Just 2 mins 30 secs behind was Chris Spavin completing the podium positions
Well done to everyone, especially the first timers to multisport or off road duathlons, see you all at Kirmington on 6th February.
