A novice event flyer can be seen HERE
The City of Durham Duathlon is based at Meadowfield Leisure Centre in Durham on Sunday 29th April. The event comprises of two undulating 5km runs around the adjacent parkland either side of a testing 25km bike ride through County Durham. The bike split includes a one mile climb from Esh Winning to Stanley Crook, followed by a long fast descent on the return to Brandon.
Helen Tones, Race Organiser from Durham Tri commented:
“We hope that in Olympic year, it will inspire first timers to give the sport a go and challenge themselves to complete a demanding but very doable course for anyone with reasonable run-bike fitness. We always get good feedback from competitors for being a novice friendly event, so it is ideal as an Olympic Year Challenge!”
“As always we expect to attract a strong field from Triathlon Clubs in the region and the team prize will be hotly contested. We are adding chip timing this year and despite the additional cost the entry fee is only £22 BTA, (£19 for students).This means the City of Durham Duathlon will remain the best value for money race on the 2012 calendar”.
