The Sprint Duathlon, the first Championship Race of the year, took place on Sunday 20th March 2016 at the Gravesend cyclopark. The weather was not very cheerful but the bright blue of team colour brightened the skies as 19 members of ATC tacked the 5km run, 20km cycle and then another 5km run. For 6 members this was their first Duathlon or Multi-Sport event.
ATC members Alex Milne won the event overall with Jon Pearce bagging 3rd place. Sally Aspital also took 3rd place ladies. There was also an ‘over 40’s’ winners awards, of which ATC members took many including all 3 Women’s placings with Karen Allnutt, Dee Hogwood and Mandy Cooper taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd – all of whom were first timers!
So the Club Champions this weekend were Alex Milne and Sally Aspital.
Alongside the Sprint Race, a Standard Distance race was held consisting of 10km run, 40km cycle and 5km run with 2 ATC members taking part. Mark Fairbrother and Andrew Brackley won 2nd and 3rd in the ‘over 40’ category.
