Wiggle London Duathlon - Sunday, September 20, 2015

More than 3,000 people have taken part in the Wiggle London Duathlon, the world’s largest run, bike, run event. Duathletes, runners, cyclists, fund raisers and elite athletes tackled the duathlon in the stunning surroundings of Richmond Park.

Alan Murchison won the men’s duathlon completing the course in a time of 02:01:27.  The women’s race was won by Emma Pallant in a time of 02:12:22. Alan Murchison, Multiple European & World AG Duathlon Champion commented, “It’s a great thrill to compete in the world’s biggest duathlon and an even greater thrill to win it.  The conditions were excellent and it was a pleasure to take part in such a well organised event”.  Emma Pallant who raced in preparation for the Adelaide ITU Duathlon World Championships, said “The atmosphere was incredible, the weather was perfect and all the competitors and spectators were having a great time”.

The course in Richmond Park, the host for all ten past editions of the event, is the largest of the capital's eight Royal Parks and the biggest enclosed space in London, provided the perfect setting for the competitors.

The race began at 8:45am and the duathletes of all abilities took to the closed roads of the park to tackle one of the four run-bike-run challenges, either the Ultra distance (20K run, 77K cycle, 10K run), Duathlon (10K run, 44K cycle, 5K run), Duathlon Relay (10K run, 44K cycle, 5K run) or the  Half Duathlon (5K run, 11K cycle, 5K run). The event which started in 2005 has grown in popularity each year and public places for this year’s event sold out four months before race day. The final Ultra finisher crossed the finish line just after 5pm having run and cycled over 100km.
