Tattenhall Runners member Alli Grundy represented Great Britain in the World Duathlon Championships, held in Avilles in Spain. Alli qualified to compete in the sprint discipline, which consists of a 5K run, a 20km bike leg, and a final 2.5km run. After some drama leading up to the race due the airline losing her baggage, Alli’s running pedigree and a storming bike section lead to a finishing place of 41st out of 187 ladies, and 8th place in her age category. Reflecting after the race, Alli commented, “It was a brilliant event, and anyone who runs and has a bike should give the sport a go.” Alli is now concentrating on qualifying for next year’s European Championships, which are being held in Austria in June.
Well done to our very own international athlete!
