A member of Grantham Running Club took part in the ETU Powerman Sprint Duathlon European Championships in Horst, Holland, last week.

Gerry Hyde was amongst duathletes from 28 nations competing for European Age Group medals, with Great Britain by far the largest team with nearly 300 competitors.

The annual event comprised a 5km run, 20km bike and a final 2.5km run.

On a tight but pan-flat course, Gerry finished in a creditable 14th place in the 50-54 age group, completing the event in a time of 1hr 5min 32sec.
