St Andrews Duathlon 2016

st-andrewsThis being my first event and after only one week of being a Eutri member I was unsure as what to expect, however, despite the early start everyone was in good spirits for the upcoming race and the weather conditions were ideal. Although I held up the race briefing unsuccessfully attempting to change pedals on my bike the race got off to an enthusiastic start with the 5km run. The following 23km cycle was a new experience for me personally though the course was fantastic on such a sunny windless day and everyone enjoyed the gentle inclines and long fast descents.

Edinburgh University presented a strong showing in the results with Paul Kerr finishing first in under an hour and Nicholas Allen following up in second place five minutes behind. Nat and I (the two newbies) recorded some decent times for ourselves and thoroughly enjoyed the experience getting to know the club and of course Coach Linda. Overall it was a fantastic day and a big thank you is in order for the St.Autri organisers and the volunteer marshals on the day for having organised
everything and cheered us along the way!
