Telegraph Men column: Duathlons

Telegraph Men column: Duathlons

Being asked to write a weekly column for Telegraph Men about my favourite topic in the world, adventure sports, was a really honour.  So far I’ve written 3 articles, my latest being about duathlons.

I was supposed to be doing the London Duathlon a couple of weekends back, but because of a slight case of Achilles tendonitis, I had to pull out.  Instead, I went to watch the PruHealth World Triathlon Grand Final, where my fellow Telegraph Men columnist, Jonny Brownlee came a very close 2nd to his arch rival Javier Gomez.

But as I sat there in the rain, watching Jonny’s brother Alastair painfully make his way around the course, very few people will be aware that another superlative was taking place down in Richmond Park – the world’s largest duathlon.  So I decided to write about it.

However, unlike my fellow journalist, Simon Jenkins of the Evening Standard, who scorned the Triathlon final for causing disruption to his travel arrangements (see original article here), I have nothing but good things to say about the event.  We need more, not less!

Do let me know what you think of my Telegraph Men articles.  I’m always on the look out for new ideas, races, kit, etc.
