Kempley

A few of us took part in the first Kempley Two Counties Duathlon yesterday and enjoyed the countryside of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.

The duathlon comprised of approximately 3.5 miles run along quiet lanes, followed by a 17 mile cycle route that included a testing climb from Much Marcle to Old Gore on the main Ledbury-Ross road and then finally a repeat of the energy sapping 3.5 mile run. Exact distances: run 5,487.25 metres, cycle 27,282.60 metres!

It was a glorious day and the promise of free cake and tea at the end kept us all going. We all used at least one excuse as to why we could have gone a little better on the day but it was a really enjoyable event. Olly did mention that he should have come in 7th due to the guy who beat him by 13 seconds sitting on his wheel for at least 5 miles on the bike - drafting next year we think will be out!
