The Waller-Gee’s take on Kielder Duathlon

Race Reports

On Saturday Amanda Waller and Sara Gee headed to Northumberland to take on the Kielder Run, Bike Run event. The Active Northumberland Kielder Run Bike Run follows an almost entirely off-road course around northern Europe’s largest man-made lake, Kielder Water, in Northumberland. The first run stage takes you on the first 11km of the Kielder Marathon Course to Transition 1 in Kielder Village.

The next stage sees you take in the North Shore on two wheels, covering 25km you will return over the impressive Kielder Dam to the South Shore and Transition 2 on the approach to Bull Crag Peninsula. We would recommend mountain bikes, hybrid bikes or cyclocross for the bike section. Traditional road bikes are not suitable.

The final stage is a 6km run taking in the final stages of the 10k route and the stunning Bull Crag Peninsula and back along the Lakeside Way to the finish at Leaplish Waterside Park. Amanda Waller finished 61st and 8th female on the day in 2:49:31 with Sara Gee 140th in 3:35:15. Great work ladies!
