Here is a piece from Padraig, staff from one of our residential houses, who entered a Duathlon with Anthony, one of our service-users. Fair play to the both of them…
The duathlon took place on the 6th July. It was part of the Belpark Triathlon Club Phoenix Park duathlon summer series.
The race involved a 2.9km Run, Cycle 13km, 2.9km Run. The race included a strong field of over 200 racers including two of Ireland best Triathletes Paul Heneghan and Aaron o Donoghue.
Anthony finished the race in 59minutes.
Anthony wanted to do a race like this for sometime and trained extremely hard for it over May and June. Anthony was extremely proud of his achievement, was very popular with the organisers and fellow competitors. Hopefully this will be the first of many races.
