Cyclopark Easter Duathlon 2020
This years race will take place on the 5th April 2020
RACE UPDATE 22/03/2020
Based on the latest government guidance around Coronavirus/COVID-19, British Triathlon, the three Home Nations (Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland and Welsh Triathlon) and the Triathlon Trust have suspended organised triathlon activity with immediate effect until at least 30 April. For this reason, we have cancelled our Duathlon on the 5th April.
We will be refunding everyone their entry fee for this event.
I also suspect that all events over the next few months will be cancelled.
If you have any question, please feel free to ask.
Stay safe and hopefully we will be up and running soon

Registration will open at 7.30am. 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.
There will be a race brief at 8.20am and the race will now start at 8.30am and the last competitor should finish by 11.30am.
Race tun through for the Sprint and long course.
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.
Then back onto the track for a 20k bike (8 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.
For the GOTri you will turn right just before the bridge that goes over the A2. You will then head back to the cyclopark down the hill. Your second run will be the same.
We have now added a map of the run course.
The Prize giving will be after the last person has crossed the line
All our events are covered by the BTF and our own Public liability insurance.
