Excellent effort in first duathlon competition!
Callum Brown was in action at the South Island Secondary School Duathlon event in Oamaru on the 7th March putting on a great performance.
It was a nervous wait to see if the event could go ahead with Alert Level 2, but as soon as restrictions were lifted Callum and his fantastic support crew family were off to the East Coast.
There were multiple grades in action of boys and girls in U19, U16 and U14s. Callum competed in the intermediate grade for those athletes aged U16 which had six athletes entered from around the South Island. The circuit for intermediates had them run 2km, cycle 12km and finish with a 2.5km run. He came across the line FIRST in his grade in a time of 35:45minutes ahead of his next rival by a slim 40 seconds.

Congratulations Callum, fantastic effort!
