The Spring Long-distance and sprint Duathlon will take place on the 10th March 2019
Hi the results are here but are not final. I am still going to try and work out what the bike ride should have been if you had done 8/12 laps.
The race is limited to 100 entry’s in total for both races.
Race 1 – Long distance 9k Run/ 30k Bike/ 5k Run
Race 2 – Sprint 5k Run / 20k bike/ 5k Run
Race 3 – GOTri 2.5k run/12.5k bike/2k run
Race update 09/03/2019
As you must all know it’s going to be very windy in the morning. We are going to go ahead with the race. If it was on the open road we would have cancelled the race. All we ask is NO deep rim wheels.
If it’s really bad, we may shorten the distance on the bike for both races. We will decide this in the morning. Registration will open at 7.45am and we are going to try and start at 8.30am.
The good news is it will be blowing end to end. You will be cycling into a head wind going down the hill and you will have the wind blowing you up the hill.
See you in the morning.
Start list as of the 07/03/2019
Registration will now open at 7.45am. We suggest you get there early so you will have the chance to ride on the track before the race to warm up. Helmets must be worn at all times.
The race will now start at 8.45am and the last competitor should finish by 11.30am.
Race tun through.
You head out of the cycle park and up the hill and turn right at 800m over the A2. Then follow the signs that will take you on the 5k lap. For the longer race you will do a 2nd lap.
Then back onto the track for a 20k bike (8 laps) or 30k bike (12 laps).
Is easy to keep count if you have a speedo. If you don’t have one just time your first lap then just keep adding that time to each lap. You will get a bit slower but you should still be able to work it out.
Its then back out onto the second run and that’s the first 5k loop again. We will have water bottles to take out at the start of the second run.
We have now added a map of the run course.
There will be a race brief at the 8.40am to go over the whole race.
The Prize giving will be after the last person has crossed the line
