The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
James Jenkins: June 2016
Tattenhall Runner, Alli Grundy, has recently represented Great Britain in the 2016 World Duathlon Championships, held in Aviles, NW Spain.
Alli qualified to compete in the sprint discipline, which consists of a 5km run, a 20km bike leg, and a final 2.5km run.
After some drama leading up to the race due to the airline losing her baggage, Alli's running pedigree and a storming bike section led to a finishing place of 41st out of 187 ladies, and 8th place in her age category.
Reflecting after the race, Alli commented, "It was a brilliant event, and anyone who runs and has a bike should give the sport a go."
Alli is now concentrating on qualifying for next year's European Championships, which are to be held in Austria in June.
We all wish her luck in the months ahead.
