The 6th annual God's Country Duathlon held out at the Lawrence River trails on Saturday was Heavenly success! The rains from the previous week didn't prevent this course from being the fastest around. The trails were in great condition and the runners and riders took full advantage of it.
It started with a fast 2 mile run, followed by a 10 mile bike divided into two separate 5 mile sections, then finishing with another 2 mile run on the same course. As you can see from the results, there was no shortage of elite racers to take advantage of this race and their times reflect it.
Trailing slightly after the first run, Tige Lamb regains the lead in the first lap of the bike leg followed closely by Justin Andrews.
Eventually, Justin Andrews regained the lead in the last mile of the final run and took the hard fought victory followed by Tige Lamb taking second and Juraj Trubiroha bringing in a close and fast third place overall. Each turned in close to a 5:30 mile for each of the 4 miles they ran.
Leann Reed took the win for the women's overall followed by Allison Baker in second and Sara Otto in third. Great Race everyone.
