Go Tri Duathlon at CFC

The event itself was run very smoothly, and any questions were answered there and then. The bike was done on a wattbike, you could definitely hear people’s legs speeding up towards the last 200/300 meters, after that we all waited for everyone in our group to finish the bike and then headed outside, which had warmed up from -2 to a tropical +2ish. The run course was a straight run out and back 5 times with Marshalls at either end giving words of encouragement and support. At the end there was a selection of mini brownies, bananas and water. All in all a lovely introduction to my first duathlon – Carly Foster

After a sweaty 8km of cycling, we chilled before the 2km run. Just enough time to recover and develop some nervous energy. Sadly, I was in too much of a rush to accept the marshals’ offer free hugs on every lap. Thanks Kevin and Charlotte, you lifted our spirits. Thanks also to all the other marshals in the Watt bike studio and out on the running course. A really friendly and well organised event. Congratulations to Emilie for putting on such a brilliant duathlon – Richard Gallois

The 8K watt bike session was manic and there was more of me left in a pool of sweat on the floor than on the bike at close. I found the waiting tough till the run and cramped up on the first lap but my legs loosened up eventually. It really was a first class organised event. Recommend it to anyone – John Legge

The duathlon was an ideal way to test the old legs early in the year. A well organized event with friendly marshals, despite them having to stand outside in the cold February weather for the run. Definitely worth getting out of bed for. – Phil Walker
