Clear skies and moderate temperatures greeted more than 800 athletes at the MOD grounds in Camberley, Surrey last weekend, though there were still plenty of muddy puddles – Peppa Pig would have loved it…
Consisting of a 7.5km trail run, 15km off-road bike and another 7.5km run, the MudMan Duathlon saw fierce competition as befitting the finale of the Human Race Off-Road Series.
In the men’s race, Callum Hughes was riding high as winner of the IceMan Duathlon four weeks earlier, and by T2 had built himself a formidable lead – one that he didn’t squander on the final run, taking first place with a time of 1:49:14
Thomas Elwood followed just a few minutes behind making him second today. Johan Olivier (Ful-On Tri) completed the top three. Callum can add the Human Race Off-Road Series Duathlon Champion to his collection of titles. Ross Smith(Bournemouth AC) and Jon Heasman (Thames Turbo) were second and third across the entire series. An incredible effort over a tough series by all three.
In the women’s race, Louise Fox – female winner of the IceMan Duathlon one month previously – maintained her winning ways despite a tight race to take gold in a time of 2:07:40. Not far behind was Fay Cripps who grabbed second place and the series title, with Elizabeth Doyle crossing the line third.
