Pete Jacobs and Tim Reed run battle Huskisson Long Course Triathlon 2014

Pete Jacobs and Tim Reed swam and rode together at Huskisson Long Course Triathlon in 2014 and at approximately 7km on the run Jacobs made his move. Reed hung on until the 10km mark when a short hill gave Jacobs the opportunity to surge and get the gap he wanted.

This video shows the over taking move by Jacobs then is shot from the side to show the two run styles.

We would love to hear your ‘informed’ comments on the differing run styles during the race.

    My verdict? Both obviously running v well. Difference in stature always makes real comparisons difficult – main difference for me is PJ looks more relaxed, esp in the shoulders. Less exaggerated elbow movement. PJ nicely “over his hips” c.w. Reed, who’s a little more upright therefore putting the brakes on slightly as his foot lands. Slightly better pull through on PJ’s stride.
