3e on the Run
Our very own Lee Ager from 3e Newcastle office competed in the 2014 ITU Age group 'Duathlon World Championship' in Pontevedra, Spain in June . A dedicated and keen athlete, Lee qualified for this event after competing in the Stockton Duathlon back in April 2014.
The Pontevedra Duathlon consisted of a 10k run of four 2.5km loops through the narrow winding alleyways and market squares of Pontevedra, followed by 2 laps of a non-technical 20km cycle circuit up a gradual climb and back down through the city onto the second loop, the race ended with a 5k run and Lee finished in an highly impressive 10th in his 25-29 age group and 70th place overall out of 500 competitors in the men’s category.
Lee said afterwards “It was such an amazing feeling to not only wear the Team GB kit, but the race itself is one I will remember for a long while and after 6 weeks of no alcohol and dieting I couldn’t wait for the tapas and Estrella Galicia’s afterwards”
