(Lake Elmo, MN - September 19, 2009) Woodbury's Scott Penticoff's 2009 season is bookended with duathlon victories. Last May he won Winter Be Gone in convincing fashion. Today at the 4th annual Young Life Duathlon, which was contested on a race venue (Lake Elmo Park Reserve) on which he has excelled over the years, Scott blew away all challengers. HIs 1:06:11 was this event's second fastest time ever and 4:41 faster than Dereck Podratz's runner-up clocking.

The women's race was won by amazing 51-year-old schoolteacher Brett Elizabeth Schulze, who was also victorious on her last appearance on this course (2005 Oakdale Duathlon).

The event was held under near-perfect conditions and drew approximately 150 participants.
