The first in a series of events held at James River State Park this past weekend was a great success. Originally dubbed as a triathlon, the event was turned into a duathlon after heavy rains upstream last week created unsafe conditions for the kayak portion of the race.

Great weekend. The weather shaped up to be sunny and pretty darn warm at James River State Park. Unfortunately the River volume remaind too high at 11kcf for a safe kayak.

The Run/Bike/Run modification made for a quick start as Ethan Johnson burned up the first Run in 22:17. Solo Men Winner Brad Fiala scorched the MTB 8 mile course in 46:12. Ed Ross-Clunis held a strong consistent race coming in 2nd Solo Male.
Solo Women Winner Carrie Parker took a overall time of 1:52:59 to secure top spot over Lisa Schott and Samantha Schinnell!
Great Job everyone!
