HILARY STARS IN EUROPE - RESULT plus SPLITS
3:37:42 in Powerman Long Distance Duathlon Championships
Durham Tri's Hilary Ross was racing to another gold medal today in Holland, in the Long Distance age-group European Championships. In her first time out at this distance - 15k run / 60k bike / 7.5k run - her overall time of 3:37:42 was very fast, and would have given her 2nd place in both age groups below!
The breakdown was:
Run 1 - 15k : 1:04:43
Bike - 60k : 1:55:47
Run 2 - 7.5k: 0:34:14

] and HERE
[full listing with intermediate times]].
The splits for the run laps [6x2.5k, and 3x2.5k], and the bike [3x20k] make for an interesting read:
Run 1 - 6 x 2.5km laps: [11min laps = 04:24 per km]
Bike - 3 x 20km laps [consistently around 31kph/19.25mph]
Run 2 - 3 x 2.5km laps
Pure gold - well done Hilary!
