Duathlon time

Central Leader - - News -

Women around the coun­try are be­ing urged to pre­pare for the coun­try’s most pop­u­lar women’s duathlon, the non­com­pet­i­tive Sparc Real Women’s Duathlon Se­ries.

The up­com­ing 10event se­ries will be the third and is a grow­ing event that has seen 12,000 women be­come duath­letes.

Many had not pre­vi­ously been ac­tive in sports.

Duathlon di­rec­tor Jane Pat­ter­son says to­gether with Sport and Recre­ation New Zealand or­gan­is­ers aim to help or­di­nary women “to ex­pe­ri­ence the thrill that per­sonal achieve­ment in a sport can bring, no mat­ter what level the in­di­vid­ual plays at”.

“Real stands for Reg­u­lar Ex­er­cise, Ac­tive Lives and we hope it will be the motto that women adopt for a life­time.”

This year Am­bury Farm Park in Manukau will be used twice dur­ing the se­ries.

Women are be­ing urged to make it a dou­ble and im­prove their times and con­fi­dence.

Reg­is­tra­tions are open and the Auck­land events are be­ing held at Orewa on Fe­bru­ary 15 and at Am­bury Farm on March 1 and May 3.
