This year at London Duathlon we are pleased to announce that we have two duathletes joining us, providing you all with a helping hand. Whether you are an esteemed duathlete or you are wanting to complete your first duathlon, our ambassadors, Debbie and Yiannis are here to help.
Debbie, is a full-time working mum, who didn’t get into sport until a later age. She ran the London Marathon for fun before deciding to try her first duathlon for her 40th birthday. She quickly fell in love with it and then went on to compete as an Age Group athlete, winning gold in the Sprint Duathlon in 2014. Debbie has since turned her hand to a range of cycling disciplines, including mountain biking but she is ready to make her return to complete a duathlon. Debbie will be going back to basics and giving us all an insight into her training as she prepares to take on the London Duathlon course with the simple goal of ‘enjoying every single mile’.
Yiannis started running in 2012 after being left inspired by the London 2012 Olympics. Since then, he has completed aquathlons, duathlons and triathlons. Fast forward 10 years and he is now a European Aquathlon Champion and a 2-time National Champion in his age group. Yiannis enjoys training for duathlons as it enables him to keep his training interesting as you have to train for both the running aspect and also cycling, therefore making everyday different.
Debbie and Yiannis are here to help you on your journey to the start line at London Duathlon. Keep your eyes peeled for interesting content from the both of them. In the meantime, check out Debbie and Yiannis on Instagram to take an insight into what they are up to!
