Brookes wins England Duathlon Championship! (28th April)

On Saturday 28th April Robin Brookes  travelled to Carsington Water near Ashbourne to compete in the England Duathlon age group Championships. The race consisted of a 12k run , 40k bike ride and finished with a 4k run.

The first 12k run was completed on an undulating course around Carsington Water before the hilly 40k bike ride. The final 4k was a flat run out and back across the dam . Battling the poor conditions, Brookes triumphed in the 50 to 55 age group to take the gold medal and become the England age group duathlon champion in a total time of 2 hours 29 minutes.
