Cleveland Junior Duathlon - RESULTS HERE
Yesterdays Cleveland Duathlon, saw great performances from all the Children taking part.
The weather was kind to us, and my Marshals were Fab ( could not do the event with out them )
A few of the children, need to be told " Not to Throw there Helmets !! " and even though we adjusted the distances to suit the time we had available, the run outside the cycle track was a great success.
Our Cleveland Tri Club Juniors, all had good races, with Thomas Wilson, picking up a 3rd Place as a   TriStart.
Tri Star 1 , saw Matthew, Aiden, Harry and ( not giving up ) Billy, finished 8th,9th,12th & 15th respectively, and Tri Star 3 , Holden finishing 8th.
Thanks to Amanda McGough for administoring first aid to a casulty of the quick dismount ! Hope Ivor has a speedy recovery.
Again, thanks to all my marshals, special thanks to my time keepers Dick & Linda, and masive thanks to our Gold Medal National Duathlon winner ( and race referee ) Sandra Main, for giving out the throphies.
Will have to sleep on it, if I am doing it again next year !!
Thanks, Amanda Waller (Race Organiser)
