Ironman Arizona saw a debut at the distance for Ritche Nicholls with a creditable 13th place just ahead of Nicholas Ward Munoz in 15th. Eimear Mullan (IRL) was sixth female and Amy Forshaw 23rd. Among the listed Brits we spotted a name from the past, Eric Blakie racing in the M60-64 category: way to go Eric (!), while Melissa Dowell took third place in the F45-49 category with an impressive 10:38:51.

With got a more complete report on the race HERE, with some iron-stats updates to follow very soon...

There's a commonly observed weather phenomena which sees the temperature drop dramatically just after dawn and anyone at the WildMan would have been well aware of it - we had a lovely little ground frost which made setting up somewhat chilly and the Oat Hut's porridge all the more welcome! Last year's event at this venue was a complete mud fest and with the recent rains we were expecting more of the same but both trail runners and duathletes came back remarkably clean for an off-road race, there were muddier legs at last week's BallBuster... The provisional series leaderboard is now headed by winners Rick Featherston (VC10) and Samantha Aplin, a full set of results is HERE.

The Cirencester Off-Road Duathlon returned once again to Cirencester Park and the results (HERE) show wins for Dan Lewis (RAF Tri) and Fay Cripps (South Downs Bikes). Winners over the half-distance race (results HERE) were James Williams (Wells Cuty Harriers) and Karen Scott (Thornbury RC).

A new addition to the duathlon calendar, the Lexus Reading Dinton Duathlon was won by David Chapman and Sarah Martin, full results are HERE.

The Walden Off Road Duathlon was won by Jez Cox and Lucy Gossage, full results will be online HERE shortly, the TriStar results will be HERE. That's repeat wins from 2012 from Jez and Lucy, while also being the 81st duathlon win (so far...) from Jez on his multisport C.V.

There were some very strong running performances from familiar du/triathlete names this weekend too. Mark Buckingham won the Brooks Brighton 10km in 30:48, while the Leeds Abbey Dash 10km saw PB performances from Phil Wylie (29:30), Dave Roper (30: 22) and Gordon Benson (30:25).
