CHARLIE Sendin and Ayano Braxton topped their respective divisions in the 5th Off-Road Duathlon held Saturday in Marpi.

Charlie Sendin started the first leg with a quick pace making his way from the starting point at the Last Command Post to the dumping site, then to the Banzai Trail, Banzai Cliff and back to the Last Command Post to complete the 6km run.

Sendin was fast on foot, but just as fast on two wheels as he transitioned into the second leg on his bike and headed to Ayuyu Drive and FEBC, the Kamikaze Trail, the Autobahn Trail, Banzai Cliff and back to the Last Command Post. He then returned on foot to finish the 2.5km run along the pathway of the Last Command Post where he reached the finish line with a time of 1:16'10.
