Ballinrobe Festival Duathlon results

Bright sunshine greeted the 100 participants last Wednesday that took part in the festival organised run bike run event. The course took in many of the  beautiful attractions of Ballinrobe, like the Bowers walk, the old mill, the river weir bridge, the newly erected town foot bridge before tacking the finish up the steep hill to Main st Ballinrobe.

With a big interest from the locals many who  were taking part for the first time in a Duathlon event  added to the atmosphere with parents, partners and kids roaring them on.

At the front of the race it was Galway Ironman organiser Ruaidhri Geraghty who took the spoils in a time of 41.06 mins from his club teammate Art Naughton 43.41 with Brendan Conway 44.10 of Westport in Third.

In the ladies section London’s Delia Debbis won in a time of  48.19 mins from Westport’s Leona Moran 48.53 and local woman Kathleen Barry third in 51.19

In the Over 40 section Jimmy Lawlor Westport was first home and in the Ladies Michelle Traynor of Ballina Tri club won this section.

Organisers would like to thank the local Order of Malta, the Gardai, Ballinrobe Physiotherapy, Marrey Bikes, Inch’s bar, O neill’s bar and to all the helpers, marshals and drivers that helped make the event a success.
