Winchester Duathlon (aka Hell on the Hills in Hampshire!)

I’ve done Winchester Duathlon twice before: 2013 (sprint) – my first ever multisport event (completed on a hybrid bike) 2014 (sprint) – my second try at this event and a massive PB for me However, this year the event has moved to the beautiful Lainston House, so it’s a new Read more…


Running with Liz as preparation for my first duathlon of 2015

Tamsyn and Liz at parkrun
