I just want to say a massive well done to the hardy souls who took part in the duathlon this morning. The numbers were small but the enthusiasm, despite the weather, was infectious. Congratulations to Davy Owens who came out on top of a barnstorming battle with Toni and to Christine Gleeson who took the front in the women's race and never let it go. To Sophie, Jenny, Brien, Corrie, Toni and Chris, chapeau.
A huge shout out today to the helpers who resisted the temptation to go back under the duvet and supported the racers:- Ciara, Marlese, Paula, Teasy, Wendy, David, Gary, Noelle and Dan - many thanks one and all.
So, two defending champions, two course records and eight PBs - sure where would you get it:silly:
A huge thank you to you Martina, for the massive amount of time you put into setting up this event for the club. People really didn’t see all those hours you spent dealing with local authiorities and TI, measuring and mapping the course, documenting the race plan, preparing signage, etc. It’s hugely appreciated!
It’s a fantastic course and once we get the weather sorted out, it’ll be a super event for club members to enjoy next year.
Congrats to our winners, Davey and Christine, and well done to all the hardy souls who competed. Put your feet up for the afternoon now.
