Booster put boost in Duathlon race The Days Duathlon race a big success for Castlebar, good field, lovely weather and a tough course were all the ingredients that served up an event that many will want to do in the years to come. As expected the run up to the Glenisland booster station proved to be decisive as hot favorite Rory Geraghty from Galway Tri club turned on the gas to open a big lead by the top of the 1450 feet climb, his time of 22minutes 24seconds for the 4k up hill run is an unbelievable bench mark to try and beat.

Rory set all the fastest splits along the way but it was young Constine Doherty from Westport who showed the real talent, at only 14years of age he pushed Dublin’s experienced Tri-athlete Neil Bolger all the way to the line and just missed out on 2nd place, his result of 3rd overall was a real surprise and he looks like a real champion for the future. Westport /cyclists preformed very well, in the ladies race Derval Devaney from Westport was a clear winner in a time of 1hour 56 minutes with Colette Hennigan from Sligo 2nd and Aileen Mc Namara from Athenry in 3rd place.

 Rebecca Conway also from Westport won the junior ladies section and Noel Brady Covey Wheelers finishing a very creditable 5th overall and taken the veterans prize. The organisers would like to thank the sponsors Harlequinn hotel (Formally the Days hotel), Marrey Bikes Ballinrobe and SEB Fitness for supporting the event. An event of this nature could not be organised without the help and support of volunteers, especially the Civil Defence and Gardai who made sure all the participants got around the course safely. Western Lakes , Westport cycling club, and Westport swimming club all provided volunteers on the day.
