Three local athletes were recently in action at the ITU Duathlon World Championships in Aviles, Spain in the Sprint Class, which involved a 5k run, 20k bike ride, and a 3k run.
Graham Morris, a Sales Manager from Wilpshire, came a highly commendable 18th in his 50-54 age category, with a time of 1 hr 10 mins 12 secs.
However, Emma Taylor, a nutritionist from Clitheroe, won her 25-29 age category, and was a brilliant fourth out of the women competing across the various age categories, with a time of 1 hr 10 mins 18 secs!
The pair are both members of Accrington Road Runners.
Chris Barnes, a former member of Accrington RR, from Hurst Green, was 29th in the 35-39 age category with a time of 1hr 7 mins 51 secs.
