Halstead’s reigning World Duathlon Champion Maurice Young competed in Sunday’s European Qualifying Sprint Duathlon event at Bedford Autodrome. Maurice’s qualification is by no means guaranteed as he faced fresh age group competition along with difficult conditions with heavy rain and strong winds throughout the race, which was ran over distances of a 5k run, 20k bike and 2.5k. Despite all of this Maurice finished 2nd in his age group with a time of 1:46:58.
Karl Hillman travelled to Exeter for Sunday’s Great West Run. The 13.1 mile undulating course included steep inclines at mile 7 and the final 2 miles to the finish line were uphill. Looking for a PB after recent strong performances, Karl was pleased to shave a few seconds from his best to finish in 1:45:24.
Mike Grealy and Sara Hill both ran in Saturday’s Great Cornard park run. Mike finished in 21:13, while Sara managed a park run PB of 26:17.
