Stirling Univeristy Duathlon

Parys headed up to Scotland for the weekend to race the Scottish Duathlon champs at Stirling University Duathlon. This race is also a British Triathlon qualifying race for the Duathlon World Champs being held in Edinburgh later this year.

Parys’s sole objective at this race was to obtain her qualifying place for the world champs. The field also comprised of a number of Elite racers including Catriona Morrison the current ETU Duathlon European Champion and hence focussing on the main priority in such a tough field was difficult.

In Parys’s own words the race was the hardest race she has ever done, with an incredibly tough run and unrelenting head wind on the bike. However it is the result that counts. As anticipated first female was Catriona Morrison and Gillian Palmer was second. Parys rounded out the top 3 female finishers overall in a time of 2:08:31 and has booked her place onto the GB age group team for the world champs. Great result. Parys now turns her attention to the ETU duathlon champs in May 2010.

I am slightly behind on the news! Full congratulations to Parys who took a Silver medal in her age-group & third overall at this year’s ETU Duathlon Chamionships, held in Budapest in May 2009.

Parys had been focussed on this event for some time and the result was a just reward for her consistent hard work ethic and commitment to her training.

Parys, then returned home raced the following weekend & won Crystal Palace Triathlon, great way to start a season.
