Skegness Triathlon Club members Pete Nicholls and Paul Harvey raced the Rockingham Duathlon this weekend.

The event is held at the motor speedway in Corby, Northamptonshire.

With a smooth tarmac surface, free from potholes and traffic, the race is very popular with athletes wanting a personal best time for the multi-sport event.

Both competed in a 5k run, 19k bike and 5k run sprint distance duathlon.

Weather conditions stayed dry for the race but the wind made it challenging for the athletes.

Results: Pete Nicholls - 1:16.42 (20th out of 140 in age group); Paul Harvey - 1:37.37.
