ry Walsh - Nation Duathlon Champion

On 5th March Mary Welsh competed in the BTF National Duathlon Championships held at Clumber Park near Worksop and organised by 1 StepBeyond Promotions

The race consisted of a 10k run, 40k cycle and a final 5krun. The undulating run was over traffic-free paths through the pleasant scenery of the country park and the two-lap cycle followed a challenging course over long rolling roads.

Early morning temperatures for the race were cold with temperatures of 4-50 C. Conditions deteriorated quickly with mist, constant drizzle and a chilly breeze moving into the area.

Mary completed the course in 3hr 21 mins and came first in her age group (Cat M 65-69) to win the gold medal.

Mary has now achieved a hat trick of duathlon successes with gold medals in Scottish, National and European Championships.

The race was a qualifier for the World Championships to be held in Spain in September and Mary looks forward to competing in that event.
