Thankfully with the latest Storm Franklin passing on before the start of the racing events calendar got underway for Setanta Triathlon Club!
The Setanta Duathlon Series, the ever popular event is back post Covid-19. With a great turn out at The Sportsman, Ravensdale.
For me, I am a complete newbie to both the Setanta Club and competing in my first ever Duathlon; it was a great experience! I had always thought about giving it a go..but never did until this year.
Very well organised event, with all information provided before the day and good instructions on the transitions rules when arrived at The Sportsman. Helmet always first! 😊
A great run route with a nice incline thrown in for good measure. Plenty of head and cross winds on the bike route which was a mixture on flat/drag but good surfaced roads with the strong winds to deal with. Very well marshalled and encouragement throughout the race with competitiors saying hello in passing! For me, the second run showed me what jelly legs are! But you soon get into a rhythm.
Well done to all involved in this event. With roughly 110 people on the day to make sure they all get home safe and well. A fully chipped event with results listed very soon after finished and photo finish pictures.
Looking forward to the next race 🥰
