While some of us think of making New Years resolutions Kilmovee pairing of Paul Phillips & Jerry Towey competed in the Land of the Giants Dualthon in Claremorris to blow off the Christmas Cobwebs.
The event is aimed more at novice & beginners but competition is competition with some of Connachts top elite athletes also fighting for a place on the podium at the business end of things.
It has proved to be a successful series in recent years & it would be great to see more people from the locality taking part in events like this. Quite a number of individual & relay teams from Ballaghaderreen CC took part with great success & with four more events of similar distance which consists of approx a 5K run, 18K Cycle followed with a 2K run.
The P + T 16Kilmovee team had something to celebrate with them taking 2nd fastest time in the Bike section of the bumper entry of almost 300 competitors.
Events can be followed on Ireland West Dualthon Series on Facebook so dust off the runners, oil up the bike (or team up with someone that has one) & get 2017 off to a flying start.
