Velopark Duathlon - Smiles and medals
On Sunday, eight members raced in the Velopark Duathlon with fantastic support from other members, friends and partners. The temperature was perfect but the wind caused some problems! Sarah Taylor won silver medals in both her age-group and the overall women's race and Hannah McQuarrie the bronze in both events with Andrea winning gold in the over 50s. Raced over the wonderful, smooth, mile circuit the event is a two-mile run + 10 mile cycle + one-mile run. Always a challenge but always ending in smiles! – Andrea
