The latest challenge our Marketing Associate Chris Wood is set to take part in is the 2012 World Duathlon Championships. It is being held in Nancy, France on 22 and 23rd September and will feature the Elite, U23, Juniors, Age-Group, Paratriathlete and Relay formats.

The course consists of a 10k run, 40k bike ride and a 5k run, which Chris and 3 other club members from the Black Country Triathletes will be representing Great Britain in. They will be up against an international field of athletes from Europe, USA, New Zealand, South Africa and Brazil.

After competing at the Powerman European Long Distance Duathlon Championships in Holland in April, Chris is expecting the competition to step up another level for the World Champs, and like last year, is set to deliver some very fast racing from the off!

After a couple of years representing Great Britain at Duathlon, next year Chris will mostly be concentrating on Triathlon and Ironman distance in particular, with the possibility of GB qualification for the World Long Course Triathlon Championships.

Chris would like to thank Fred Williams Cycles, High5 Sports Nutrition, Sutton Maddock Vehicle Hire and Oxyfit for their continued support.

The a451 HQ wish him the best of luck!
