2 Thirds at Goodwood

Tuesday 12th April 2011

5 Brighton Phoenix athletes raced at the Spring Duathlon on Sunday, the second event in our multi-sport championship. The venue was the Goodwood Motor Race Circuit making it a potentially fast race. The runs were on the inside of the 2.4 mile track and the bike used the rest of the tarmac.

There were two distances. The shorter was 1 lap run/ 6 laps bike/ 1lap run, and the longer 1 lap run/ 10 laps bike/ 2laps run.

Georgina Browne, doing her first duathlon, entered the short race. The long race saw Erica Martin finish 3rd senior female and Malcolm Hughes 3rd vet male. Nigel Herron finished a fine 8th overall. Paul Thomas, who is preparing for the European para-duathlon, got a well deserved cheer as he crossed the line after completing his second run in the hot sun.
