Thank you to everyone who joined us today for the Wyre Forest off Road Go Tri Duathlon. All 42 finishers did a fantastic job as they navigated hills, mud, and more hills!!! The course is much harder than you’d first anticipate, especially the second section of the bike course with a long slog back up a never-ending-hill!!
At least half of the field were competing in their first ever duathlon – CONGRATULATIONS! It’s great to welcome you into multisport events and we hope you have caught the bug! Whether you were here to clock a certain time, or a certain position, or just to have a go and complete it – we were very glad to see you on the start line getting stuck in!
Provisional results are included in the table below. Please do drop us an email if you have any queries. All 42 starters completed the event and we hope you felt proud crossing that finishing line:
|Position||Bib Number||Name||Finishing Time|
|31||36||Chloe Hammond Oliver||62:11:00|
As equally amazing as the athletes, are our very encouraging and supportive marshals! Some of them had already been marshalling at Junior Park Run before our event; others had helped set up the course hours in advance and others cheered and supported whilst also entertaining their little ones – a multi-task not to be underestimated! So a big thank you to all of our marshals without whom we wouldn’t be able to hold these events. And a special shout out to some of our Tri Energy Kids members who kept a careful eye on the Haribo at the finisher’s table!
Thank you also to the team at the Forestry Commission who granted us permission to hold this event and to Megan and Richard at the Forest for supporting us in our course design and risk assessment to ensure we could enjoy the beautiful scenic forest alongside other forest users. Be sure to like their Facebook Page to check out any other events, sporting and non sporting, that may be happening.
Photos of the event will follow shortly on our Facebook Page which you can find here. If you enjoyed the event it would be great if you could leave us a review on Facebook. If you didn’t – please drop us an email with your feedback on what we could do better next time.
We’re very much hoping to hold the event again around October/November time so watch this space. In the mean time we do have our Summer Go Tri Duathlon Series at Stourport Sports Club. Entries for these events are already open and you can find out more about these by visiting our website here.
