Trinity sports sprint Duathlon series

9/29/2014 7:21:00 AM

This weekend saw some of our athletes compete in the Trinity sports duathlon series. This was the first of the 4 race series and was held at the Germiston Aquatics Club.

The distance to be covered was a 5km run followed by a 20km cycle and to end off the race you had a 2.5km run. It was a perfect day for racing until the wind picked up and started gusting. Both Kevin and Darryn had entered this race, racing a duathlon for the first time is 4 and 12 years respectively.

At the conclusion of the run Kevin was looking strong finishing his first 5km in a time of 18:07 and came off the run in third place, Darryn completed the run in 10th position in a time of 21:26.

Onto the bike they went, the wind causing havoc with the riders. Kevin came off the bike still in 3rd place in a time of 36:30 and Darryn who used the difficult conditions to his advantage rocketed through the 20km course in a time of 33:35 to record the second fastest time of the day. 

All that remained for the athletes was to find those running legs and complete the 2.5km run which was no problem for Kevin who set the quickest second run time for the event in a time of 10:02. Darryn completed the seconded run in 13:22

We would like to congratulate our athletes for there great work 

Kevin found himself on the overall podium for the race as well as 1st Veteran 
Darryn came home in 6th place overall and 3rd in senior category
