There were 31 athletes in Sunday's GO TRI Duathlon at Tockington.
Conditions were pretty good - cool and dry without too much breeze - but some disruption to the route (roadworks) and the usual post-rain gravel on some of the turns meant it wasn't totally ideal. Nevertheless there were some fast times including a first place under 40 minutes (Chris Mills - 39.21). 2nd place went to veteran Mark Wilkinson (40.11), with Kit McColl 3rd (42.53). In the women's results, first overall was Marie Monaghan in a time of 44.23, with Gwenno Goode from Barry second in 48.18 and a 3rd place for Sarah Bennet in 50.15.
Results are now online (see link attached) and I'm very happy to say that guest race photographer Nick Tuftnell has captured the event with a great gallery of photos on Flickr - much appreciated Nick! Thanks are also due to Lucinda from North Bristol Tri who stepped in as a marshal at the last minute so the race could go ahead.
To those of you racing on our course for the first time I hope you enjoyed the simplicity of GO TRI and the scenic race route. We'll be fixing up our series for next year soon and hope to have three Duathlons as well as a GO TRI Triathlon all at the same venue in 2023.
