The British Elite Duathlon Championships are beginning with what is expected to be a hotly contested race at Rockingham Motor Racing Circuit this Sunday 29th March.
Fresh from an ITU World Triathlon Series race in Abu Dhabi, Emma Pallant will be widely considered as the favourite for the women’s event having finished fastest last year.
Her closest challenger on paper will be Katie Hewison who followed Pallant home in second in 2014. British Elite Junior Triathlete of the Year Sophie Coldwell will have something to say about that as she moves up to the senior ranks following a second-placed finish in last year’s junior race.
The venue will also pay host to World Paratriathlon Champion, Lauren Steadman (PT4) as she bids to get her season off to a flying start in the paraduathlon race. She will be joined by fellow paratriathletes, Joe Townsend (PT1), George Peasgood (PT4) and Andrew Lewis (PT2).
