OP7.png

The Oulton Park Autumn Duathlon took place yesterday, Sunday 2nd October 2016, at the famous Oulton Park Race track. We were very lucky to have an incredible day with clear skies and plenty of sunshine. This duathlon was an ETU European Championship Qualifier and hundreds of competitors and supporters made their way to the venue for this fantastic event. This event was literally traffic free racing at its very best!

Competitors had a choice of standard or sprint distance races - run 2 laps (8.61km) for the standard or one for the sprint, then cycle 9 or 5 exhilarating laps on your bike (21.55km or 38.76km), and then finish with one final run lap (both distances 4.307km).

In the sprint race Male Category, we saw Cameron Richardson take the win in a time of 01:00:06, ahead of Lewis Timmins who finished in 01:00:07 and Ed Auden in 01:01:22. For the Female Category Naomi Collier claimed the women’s title in 01:10:04, with Jo Billings coming second in 01:10:40 and Gwen Kinsey securing third place in 01:11:01. 

In the standard distance race Male Category, Dave Roper triumphed and took the win with a time of 1:38:55, ahead of Paul Vernon who finished 1:39:58 and Dan Blake 1:40:43. For the Female Category Claire Steels won the race with a time of 1:51:28 ahead of Anna Weaver 1:52:31 and Rachel Wiseman 1:54:43.
