This particular event was my first Duathlon And being in the Forest of Dean it was very challenging with the hills which I love a challenge so it was perfect. Thanks to the team event organisers.

Nice course, well organised but in my opinion, hard!! It was my first duathlon and I found the incline in the run challenging but manageable. However the ride was particularly challenging for me. It was hill after hill at points which for a newbie, hard!None of this a criticism but a reflection of my assessment. Great experience for me
