Race: 19 October 2014, Adelaide CBD, South Australia.
The Australian Para-duathlon Championships were held at the same time as the Australian Duathlon Championships. This time around there was no separate start for para-duathletes so I competed in the same wave as all other fully-able age groupers. The weather conditions were excellent, the course was beautiful although challenging with lots of uphills and downhills in both the run and cycle parts. The event was 5km run, 20km ride and 2.8km run. I had an amazing race, especially felt good on the bike after a first tough run up and down along the Torrens river. I won the National para-duathlon title in my class and finished 9th in my age group. I was delighted with both results which qualify me for the Duathlon World Championships next year here in Adelaide.
