Winter Duathlon Team Relay Result

On Sunday three of us headed over to the CycloPark Gravesend to compete as a three man team in the BridgeEvents run Winter Duathlon.
Last year our team (Ross Hollands, Paul Ruffy, Richard Jones) finished a very good fourth place and this year we were hoping to go one better and make the podium. The format this year was slightly modified and comprised of a 3krun/12.5k bike/3km run all to be completed by each team member.
I’m pleased to say we did just that coming home 3rd fastest team overall. Mason Burrage, a new runner but keen cyclist, stepped up the challenge to fill in for an injured Richard and did a sterling job, posting the fastest bike time of the threesome. His overall time reading very well in the context of team result it again goes to show the benefit of being strong on the bike and how much time you can make up.
Here’s our overall result along with a rather squeezed podium picture!
