Naas Triathlon Club hosted the second Butchers Block Duathlon National Series race at Punchestown racecourse on Sunday 21st Feb. Very challenging conditions greeted the competitors at this event as the wild weather and strong winds meant finishing this race was in itself an achievement.
With 15 of the 200 odd competitors finishing the event in under an hour it was a reflection of the calibre of competitor in this National Series & Intervarsities Championships competition.
Para Triathlon formed part of this event for the first time with a number of para-triathletes competing in the Duathlon. Naas Triathlon Club also hosted a time trial as part of para-triathletes preparation for international Para Olympics 2016 time trials. The determination and skill of these competitors was particularly impressive and a welcome addition to this event.
