Marlborough athletes Susie Aviss and Rachel Monk competed in the Contact National Duathlon Championships in Christchurch yesterday.

Both competed in the Standard Distance – 10km run, 40km bike, 5km run – and did exceptionally well. Susie won her age group and came 3rd overall behind some well known athletes:
