Keith McCarthy opted for a muddy event this weekend. Walden Tri hosted their Off-Road Duathlon at Carver Barracks (near Saffron Walden) on Sunday.
Recent rainfall made for an interesting off-road event, consisting of a 5km run, 18km bike, 3 km run around the disused airfield. However, the variety of terrains, obstacles and even nearly losing his shoe on the run didn’t slow McCarthy down. His first run took 00:27:29 and covered 6.25km. A swift 40 second transition saw McCarthy out on the bike to complete the section in 01:39:33. Another fast change and McCarthy was back out on the second run. The final 3.25km took 15:51 giving him a total time of 02:24:11 bringing him back in 19th place.
