Kinetica Spring Ballbuster Duathlon

Last weekend Gerry Hyde, a GRC runner as well as a Witham Wheeler, was in action with over 320 multi-sport athletes at the Kinetica Spring Ballbuster Duathlon, Box Hill, Surrey. Over a tough five lap course comprising an 8 mile run, 24 mile bike, and second 8 mile run the competitors climbed an accumulative 3000 feet. The route forms part of the Olympic road cycling course and was a good test of stamina. Despite a lingering calf injury which put participation in to doubt in the week before the race, Gerry was pleased to run the 2nd 8 mile lap over a minute quicker that his first and finish in 18th place in his age group and 124th overall in a time of 3:35:06.
