Get off the couch – and into the La-Z-Boy

9 01 2010

Friday 22nd January is the day for blokes to dust off the bike and the running shoes, and have a go at the Matt Heagney Memorial La-Z-Boy Duathlon.

This event follows the success of the Sport Marlborough Women’s Duathlon, and it offers men of all ages, shapes and sizes, a chance to take part in a multisport event in which all the distances are achievable, but still offer enough of a challenge to make it interesting.

Starting from the Henry Street bridge, the Duathlon includes an 800m walk/run, 5.5km cycle, 5km walk/run, 5.5km cycle and finshes off with a 200m run.

Organiser Lawrence Turner, from the Clubs of Marlborough, says that the event will attract all age groups, from 14 years to 70+, and gives all men a chance to participate in something they may have not considered before. Participation is the key here, having fun and enjoying the benefits of being active.

You can pick up an entry form from Spokeman Avanti Plus, Clubs of Marlborough or Stadium 2000.

The Duathlon starts at 5.30pm of Friday 22 January 2010. Dressing up is encouraged – this is a fun event after all.
