Athletes take on the Freaky Peaky challenge

Four members of Weston Athletic Club took part in the Freaky Peaky challenge.

A BEAUTIFUL day awaited four members of the Weston Athletic Club who competed in the Freaky Peaky duathlon.

The description of the local event is enough to make you feel tired with three bike rides over a distance of 60k, separated by three individual runs over Brean Down, Brent Knoll and Crook Peak totalling 14.5k.

Marc Bostock came in first for the club in 3.09.46, followed by Simon Andrews in 3.20.43. Both achieved significant quicker times than when they previously raced the event.

Nick Cook finished third in a creditable 3.46.44, with Chris Edwards finishing in 4.27.31 and to his delight winning the V60 category prize.
