Beautiful weather, stunning scenery and a formidable challenge greeted participants at last week’s Ashford Duathlon in Cong, Co Mayo. The event, which included a 5km run, 20 km cycle and final 2km run, took place amid stunning scenery in and around the Ashford Castle estate. Almost 200 participants from top class athletes to complete novices travelled from across the country to race on a course which skirted Lough Corrib, Ashford Castle, Cong Woods and Cong Abbey. The winner, Martin Grealish, put on a masterclass of racing with a time of 55.31, over four minutes clear of second placed Art Naughton. The ladies’ race was won by Anne Marie Egan in a time of 67.30.
