Once again, Mellieha AC along with Ship-Low Cost by Express Trailers, held its Duathlon races on the 26th March 2016 in the scenic settings of Dingli cliffs.  The event, now in its 4th edition, was well attended and organised.

This year’s winner in the Male category was Keith Galea and Hannah Pace taking first place in the Women’s category. John Rapinett and Hadrian Bonello were the two Mellieha AC athletes who participated in this year’s edition.

This year’s Kid’s races edition was composed of over 30 children from various Athletic nurseries who took to the streets in the 1KM and 2KM races.  This event gave the children the opportunity to get the feel of organised racing and their enthusiasm radiated all through the event.  Mellieha AC Nursery coaches were also present to prepare the children with some basic race strategy and offer their support.  The 2KM Kids Run was won by Kyle Cassar, a product of the Mellieha AC Nursery.

The 2016 edition of the Mellieha AC Ship-Low-Cost Duathlon and Kids Races was a success and a prelude to the Triathlon season which kicks starts in the coming weeks.  A special thanks is also extended to all club members helping out in the organisation of this event, Mark Gaglione of Garmin Malta, B’Kara St Joseph AC and Barry Whitmore for their support during the event.
