Burringham Summer Duathlon
The warmer weather attracts big turnout.

The warmer evenings made for a big turnout on Wednesday night for the second in the series of the Summer Duathlon Series held every other Wednesday at Burringham, Scunthorpe. The Duathlon is a 1 mile run, 14 mile cycle and then finally a tough 2 mile run to finish you off.

Due to such a large turnout, competitors were set of in four waves, with the fourth wave containing the fastest.

Last years series winner Andy Shaw pulled up after the cycle leg with an injury, which left a five way battle for the top.

Drafting is not allowed!Early doors it was Andy Shaw, Dean Kirkham and Ross Cooney who got away after the run on the bikes. Drafting is not allowed on the cycle leg, so if you are passed the rule is that you drop back.

Paul Edgar and Steve Clark were next up on the bikes and Paul Edgar pushed hard to bridge the gap to the leading trio and then pushed passed. Peter Connolly chased in fifth place. The final 2 mile run saw Dean Kirkham take the win with hard chasing Ross Cooney and Paul Edgar in third. Steve Clark consolidated his forth place with Pete Connolly taking fifth. Full results to follow.

Photographs from the event can be seen in the gallery.
