Important race update 13/01/2021
The cyclopark is closed until further notice. As all our events are run through British Triathlon we can only hold the event is we are given the ok from them. Sorry but we have had to cancel the first race on the 7th February.
Everyone will be given a full entry fee refund or they can transfer over to another Duathlon in March or April. I will be sending out an e-mail later today.
Stay safe and i will keep you updated on what’s going on.
The 9th Winter Duathlon will take place on the 7th Feb 2021
All our 2021 Duathlons are registered by Triathlon England
Race distance 6k Run /20k Bike/ 3.3k Run
GOTri Duathlon 2.5k run/ 15k bike/ 2.2k run
We will be using the Midweek Duathlon course if the weather is bad. This gives us more shelter from the wind.
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.
Entry’s are now soon

We will be taking entries on the day. All the start times and race information is below.
This is your chance to race on a 100% traffic free bike. This race is ideal for anyone new to Duathlon.
Registration will open at 8.00am for the Winter Duathlon only. 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 9.00 am for the winter Duathlon only and the last competitor should finish by 11am. We have the track till 12pm.
Race run through
For the sprint you will all run one lap of the track (2.5k) then its out of the cyclopark for a 3.5 lap. Foe the GOTri you only run one lap of the track.
Then back onto the track for a 20k bike (8 laps) GOTri is 15k (6 laps)
Its 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 3.5k loop again.
We have now added a map of the run course.
There will be a race brief at the 8.50am to go over the whole race.
The Prize giving will be after the last person has crossed the line
All our events are covered by BTF and our own Public liability insurance.
