Sally Smith teamed up with her friends Ellie Hynes and Liz Weeks in the South East Team Duathlon Championships held at Cyclopark on Sunday, 4 November.
The event involved a 3km run followed by a 12.5km bike leg before running a further 3km.
The ladies had tough competition from numerous specialist multi-sport teams but each team member carried their own strengths to put to use on the course.
Sally was off first, she ran the first leg in a personal best time and made up two places on the bike to see the team sitting in 2nd. She lost a place on the run leaving them looking at 3rd in a time of 55mins.
Liz Was next, she cruised the run putting the team into 2nd by several minutes. She extended the lead again by a minute on the bike and pulled away more in the run to finish in 50 mins.
Ellie, a strong all rounder, again made more time on 3rd in both the run and bike trying so hard she was almost sick on the final run. However her efforts and a time of 54mins secured the team a strong 2nd overall in the standings.
