DUATHLON: Competitors on their bikes for race in King’s Wood, Challock
COMPETITORS from as far away as Cumbria descended on King’s Wood, Challock, at the weekend for a duathlon organised by Ashford Tri Club.
Perfect weather conditions helped the 128 entrants who took part in the 3k run, 15k mountain bike ride and second 3k run on Sunday.
The race, sponsored by Podplus, the sports shop and injury clinic at the Julie Rose stadium, is the fourth event organised by Ashford Tri Club.
Club chairman Nicki Barron said: “We see lots of competitors returning year after year to take part in the race as well as novices trying it for the first time.” Left: Competitors battle for position during the mountain bike stage, and below, the runners get underway at the start in King’s Wood
