Married duo tackle duathlon
Newmarket Cycling and Triathlon Club’s husband and wife team — Gordon and Gemma Irvine — travelled to Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire on Sunday to compete in the 2018 ETU European Championship Duathlon qualifier.
Gordon took on the standard distance and finished in a time of 2 hours and five minutes to finish 12th in his age group, while Gemma raced the sprint distance and stopped the clock in one hour 12 minutes to finish sixth in her age category.
Closer to home, Di Thomas ran the Stowmarket Half Marathon in a respectable time of 2.06.
n Also at the same Stowmarket event, Newmarket Joggers member Svetlana Zinchenko set a new personal best time of 1.56.27.
Meanwhile, fellow Jogger Mark Hayward tackled the sunnier weather and hills at the Cyprus Marathon in Limassol to finish in 17th position overall thanks to his time of 2.55.00.
