Report from Karl Webster, Peaklife Sport on the Derwent Duathlon which took place on Sunday. Apart from the actions of idiots who, the night before the race, stole some of the signs, arrows and cones as well as four crates of the race beer, the race went off well in good weather conditions.
There is the option of a fell run or a road run first and the bike route is out and back along the reservoir. There was a 2:1 ratio believing it is advantageous to do the fell run first.
The winner was Jason Chubb 1.38.00 and 1st lady was MAC's Elsbeth Grant 1.44.07 (1st FU20), Lizzie Webster 1.47.58 (2nd FU20), Christine Howard 1.50.51 (1st FV40), Lottie Riddle 1.54.54, Andy Mellor 1.59.31. 94 finishers.
