Club Duathlon 2014

The annual Racing795 Duathlon took place on Sunday the 30th of March with a 3km run, 25km bike and 3km run starting and finishing at Spellman Park, Kildavin. Much credit for the success of the day must go to Barry Byrne and his team of helpers for putting on a great event which was really enjoyed by members and guests alike. Fintan Redmond was in great form and took the men’s race ahead of an impressive performance by Joe Lillis with Ross Moorehead hot on the heels in 4th. In the ladies race Dena Hogan was the clear winner despite competing and winning a 4 mile trail race the day before. Fiona Gore took 2nd place with our own Tracy Redmond putting in a fine performance to take third. There was some great battles right through the field with the two lap bike course proving a stiff and interesting test.

The main focus of the day is to give people new to Triathlon an opportunity to try the sport and it was fantastic to see plenty of novices toeing the line with close to 20 competitors new to Triathlon – as they say you don’t have to be great to start but you do have to start to be great!  A note of thanks to Kildavin/Clonegal GAA club for use of their excellent facilities which is greatly appreciated.
