2016 Waihi "Half-Nugget" Duathlon
Sam Sheaff and Kaia McKenzie competed in the Waihi “Half-Nugget” duathlon on Saturday May 7th. The event consisted of a 10KM Off-road run, followed by a 23km mountain bike ride. Both courses are quite challenging, starting from Waihi Beach, through rugged bush trails, farmland, single tracks and ending up in Waihi town. There were plenty of hills, obstacles and river crossings to get through, but luckily the weather played its part as it was a beautiful day. Sam Sheaff completed the run and was the first team competitor into the transition area. Kaia then had a good ride back down into Waihi, which meant the boys finished as Winners of the under 18 teams division. They have both already agreed to race again next year and try for the overall win!
