Winter Warmer Duathlon 21st Feb 2016

A mild but blustery Velopark saw 61 duathletes compete against each other but also 20-30 mph gusts this morning in the second of the 2016 British Triathlon series of Duathlons at this iconic venue. IMG_0035

This series is hosted by different London league clubs over the course of the year and is very popular with athletes of all abilities. The distances of 2 mile Run, 10 mile cycle and 1 mile run lends itself well to anyone trying multi sport for the first time, or for very experienced athletes looking to sharpen speed or hone transition skills.

East London Triathletes were the proud and well organised hosts of this mornings race with Peter Dyer at the helm as race organiser alongside 20+ volunteers helping stage the event with duties ranging from registration, timing, transition as well as the marshalls on all parts of the course.

Volunteering is a great opportunity to give something back to the sport we all love and was very well received today. We welcome anyone who wants to help the club host their very own Duathlon, the Dragonslayer which takes place on 8th May again at the Velopark.

More news on that to come. Many Thanks for everyones help today.
