Fingers crossed the event will take place but we cant take anything for granted.
In the event of the race being cancelled due to covid19 everyone will be given a full entry fee refund or they can transfer over to Duathlon in April.
As things stand as of now the 2021 race will now be run under covid19 rules. This means a runner will start every 10 seconds. The race is limited to 100 runners. This is the only way the race can take place.

Race information for Sunday.
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.
On Sunday there is a slight chance of rain and it will be cold so wear the right clothing. You can always take it off if you get hot.
Race run through.
You head out of the cycle park and up the hill and turn right at 1k and go 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. There will be water at this point.
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 for you to take out at the start of the second run.
The GOTri race will start at the same time. You will head out the same way as the other 2 races but there will be a turn point that will take you back to the cyclopark. You will then cycle 12.5k (5 laps)
After you have finished you will go back out and repeat the first run.
There will be a short race brief at the 8.40am to go over the whole race.
The Prize giving will be done as soon as we can due to the cold weather. Also due to the size of some of the races there will only be Trophies for the first 3 finishers M/F.
All our events are covered by BTF and our own Public liability insurance.
