Duathlon makes welcome return to Neyland

THE Pembrokeshire Duathlon returned to Neyland on Sunday (Mar 6) with over 100 athletes taking part and finishing.

The event has been held every year since 2008, with the exception of 2021 because of the covid-19 pandemic, and athletes were excited to get back on the course.

Athletes endured a 5k run, a 20k bike ride and a 2.5k run to finish off.

Mayor of Neyland Simon Hancock started the race from Brunel Quay on a cold and sunny morning.

First across the line was the relay team of Team Watt who completed the course in a time of 01:03:01.4.

The first male to finish was Rupert Milton whose finishing time was 01:05:05.7. Just two seconds behind him was Richard Landon.

In third with a time of 1:06:54.5 was Stuart Matthews.

The first lady to finish was Catherine Marks of Pembrokeshire Tri who finished with a time of 1:18:03.7.

Second was Elizabeth Williams, also of Pembrokeshire Tri, and the third lady across the line was Bev Barrett of the Tenby Aces.

Mayor Simon Hancock said: “A pleasure to officially start the Pembrokeshire Duathlon this morning. Over 130 entrants competed in the event including competitors from Cardiff and Nottingham which involves a 5km run, 20 km cycle race and another 2.5 km run.

“A bright, cold start at Brunel Quay, Neyland. Hope everyone enjoyed the event which has become very much an annual staple.”
