Tom leads the way at the Poole Park Duathlon

Year 10 pupil, Tom, led the way at this year’s inaugural Poole Park Duathlon at the start of June. Party of the Poole Festival of Running, and hosted by Rockley Park, the watersports-based event featured a 2km run around the lake, a 1.2km paddle and lastly, a second 2km run at the lake. Tom completed the three laps in a time of 28 mins 53 seconds, a second ahead of his father, who finished with a final time of 28 minutes 54 seconds. Congratulations to them both.
