Alison and Emma took part in the duathlon located in Ludlow, which claims to be the toughest duathlon in the UK! 10k run, followed by a 33k bike, finished with a 5k run.

The organisers put on a bike familiarisation ride this morning a few weeks before the race, to allow competitors to get to know the course. Emma and Alison found this a very useful.

On the race day, both did really well, reaching their 3 hour target, with the bike averaging around 15 mph.

Both feel that there should be a reward for completing the country’s toughest duathlon! It would also be brilliant as a club event because the atmosphere in the castle afterwards was amazing with lots of clubs there and it’s local.

Both did so well, with Alison coming 1st in her age category and Emma coming 2nd in her category!
