Cecilia Shinn @Challenge Fuerteventura

Cecilia Shinn competed against the ELITE Women on the 14th of April, at the Fuerteventura Challenge in the Canary Islands, managing a respectable 12th place finish in her debut!

The weather conditions were stable, with a fairly calm swim in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean, followed by one long loop through the rocky volcanic hills, challenging the strong headwinds over the 1000m overall climb. The day had heated up the time the run started, with a one and a half loop to neighbouring Gran Tarajal and around the golf course, before finishing on Las Playitas beach.
The men’s race was won by Rasmus Henning and Emma Kate Lidbury (GBR) took 1st place in the women’s race.
