Eighty six athletes from all over Spain took part in Mojacar´s II Cross Duathlon on December 15. It was the second event to score towards the II Circuito At –Sport de Duatlon Cross, organized by Mojacar Town Hall with the collaboration of the Andalucian Triathlon Federation and managed by Almeritour-Sport.
A hard event due to the serious uphill slopes in both the running and cycling sections, the duathlon consisted of a six-kilometre stretch on foot through the streets of Mojacar followed by an 18-kilometre cycling section and a three-kilometre final stretch on foot ending at Plaza del Mirador. For the “under-14” category, the different sections were reduced by half.
In the senior category, Manuel Salinas Puertas and Amaya Jimeno Almazan won the mens and womens sections respectively.
