2012 Winter Duathlon Series - Otago Championships

A field of strong athletes turned out for the Otago Championships on a cool and clear day. Competitors in the Championship race completing 4 laps of the run course, 4 laps on the bike course and finished off with another two laps of the run course for a total race distance of 10km/40km/5km.

Rob Creasy and Chris Keogh pushed the pace from the outset, both coming in under the 2 hour mark. Katie Menzie was a class above in the womens field and pushing the top men to come in 4th overall. Anthony Rowcroft took out the Vet Males category and Lesley Stevens breaking the 3 hour mark to win Vet Women.

A hand full of athletes also raced a short course (5/20/2.5), with Bronte Tennant taking line honours.

Congratulations also to Olivia Moon and Aaron Giller who both took home $200 Frontrunner vouchers for the series draw for athletes who competed or mashaled at 4 of the 5 winter races (including the adventure race).

Thank you to everyone who has helped out during the duathlon season and to our sponsors, Browns Avanti, and the Frontrunner who have provided great spot prizes throughout the season.

Congratulations to all athletes. Bring on the warmer temperatures and summer triathlon series (dates to be confirmed)
