Mrs Kim Andrews —


Jonty Sowden competed in the Ashburton Duathlon on Sunday 6th May. He did the short course which is a 2.5km run, a 10km bike and a 1.25km run. Jonty placed first in his age group and was also first male overall which included teenagers, adults and teams. Jonty will compete again on 10th June and look to improve his time. Well done Jonty.

If anyone else is keen to do the Duathlon on June 10th, please see Mrs Andrews for more information.
