Thankfully the rain stayed away from the first event of the year, The BUCS Duathlon at Castle Coombe Circuit. 15 members of the University of Exeter Triathlon Club took part, with 4 of those being new members of the club.
Laura Wakeham was the top woman from the club, finishing 38th with a time of 56:53.091, with Lucy Argall and Bex Newell finishing 46th and 68th to mean the top women’s team finished 15th overall.
Tom Kitchen was the fastest man, finishing 114th in a time of 51:06:429, with Faolan Lidstone finishing 172nd and first year, Ollie Teenan, finishing 128th. This meant the top mens team finished 32nd overall.
Special mention must be made of Lucy’s noble attempts to carry on despite the fact on of her leg warmers had fallen down to her ankle and Kelly Wariner completing the bike ride on a mountain bike.
