Duffany, Kellner Lead July Duathlon
CANTON - The storm cleared just prior to the arrival of 33 participants at the Little River boat launch in Canton for the July run-paddle-run duathalon. The first place solo male finisher was Arden Kellner in a time of 29:22. Emma Duffany enjoyed another first place finish in the solo woman category in a time of 31:18, and the team of Scott Visser in a kayak with runner Hayden Trejos lead a large field of teams with a finish of 25:26.
In the team category, Josh Akins got his paddling teammate Allen Kelly on the water before Scott Visser started his kayak portion. The roles reversed between these two kayak paddlers somewhere on the Little River and Hayden Trejos held on to the lead afforded him by his paddler, to finish 32 seconds ahead of Josh Akins.
