The newly formed Perse School Adventure Racing Club took part in its first multi-discipline event over the weekend: the Walden Tri Off-Road Duathlon. The race course incorporated a 2km running leg followed by a technically challenging 6km trail bike section and finished with a short distance 800m sprint leg. Competitors needed a high level of endurance and determination, as well as the technical skill required for the off-road biking section. 11 members of the Adventure Racing Club entered the competition from Years 7 to 10 with some sterling performances from Oliver Cantrill (Year 9) and Alastair Minshall (Year 7) who came 6th and 7th in their respective age categories in a tough race.
The Adventure Racing Club will be going on to compete in the 2012 Rat Race Adventure Race series next term alongside other multidiscipline competitions.
