Organiser's Description

Our Central Lancashire Duathlon is hosted at UCLAN the University of Central Lancashire. Making use of their superb facilities you will be running on their amazing Crit track before heading out on to the flat(ish) roads in the surrounding area for an amazing looped bike ride before heading back into the university grounds to complete the course with your final run.

This our newest event also boasts a full range of junior age group categories to help bring new talent into the sport. We want to encourage everybody to give it a try. All Junior duathlons will take place within the grounds so completely away from any traffic.

All you need to take part is a safe bike and helmet, a pair of trainers and a willingness to give it a go.

Distances vary depending on your age but adult GO TRI is Run: 2.15K Bike: 11.19K Run: 2.15K with the SPRINT Run: 4.65K Bike: 17.44K Run: 2.15K.

The Junior ages range from 8 - 15 and distance vary accordingly. Run: 400m - 2k Bike: 1.5K - 7.5K Run: 200m - 800m.

As you can see from the distances there really is something for every ability at this event so take a look and get yourself booked in. All races will be timed and every entry will receive a medal for taking part.

In addition to this we are also proud to say that the Junior Waves are part of the Junior Northwest Series so you can also pick up points.

Course Details

All runs will take part on UCLANs amazing crit track surrounded by the beautiful university grounds before heading out onto the roads (adults only) for the ride to take in the amazing (relatively flat) surrounding campus area.

Event Briefing details

Please arrive 15 – 30 minutes before your wave start time. This should give you ample time to familiarise yourself with transition, warm up, discuss any queries you may have with the team and use the facilities if necessary. Waves start at 09:00, on both days. Start lists will be posted on this page with your number and official start time the day before the event take place.

Your race number and medal will be at an allocated place in transition. This will be your area to keep your bike and trainers and any nutrition/hydration you may require during the event.

You will have a specific area within transition where you can keep your bike, running shoes and any nutrition/hydration you require during the event. Please keep any bags or items you will not need during the event in your car. There will be no additional storage available.

Spectators are more than welcome. There is a cafe on site that has been prepped and ready to serve your every need for coffees, teas, bacon barms and loads more.

The start line will be marked on the ground, with Black and Yellow tape. It will be away from transition, positioned appropriately for social distancing.

We are reintroducing a staggered mass start. we will be starting 10 participants every 30 seconds at all events. This means less hanging around at the start for you, while enabling an opportunity to maintain social distancing where possible and avoiding any bottlenecking early on the run courses.

Please ensure you maintain social distancing while waiting to start. And be ready to start a your allocated time to avoid holing up any other participants. If you arrive at the start time after your time has gone, you will have to wait until all other participants have started to commence your race.

Please run on the left side of the track to allow for overtaking and returning runners.

Please ensure you are adhering to social distancing measures while running. Overtaking is allowed but if you are overtaken, please drop back slightly to allow for adequate distance. If you overtake, please move over to the right, but ensure you avoid any oncoming runners.

The mount line will be well out of the car park/transition area, and it will be marked with a flag. The dismount line will be at the same line as where you mounted your bike. Please walk/run with your bike from/to transition. DO NOT mount or dismount before these points. This has been put in place to avoid any confusion between cyclists, runners or motorists as well as providing additional space to adhere to social distancing.

All riders MUST wear a helmet and will not be allowed on the course without one.

All junior riders will ride on the crit track within the university grounds but must still follow the above.

The finish line will be at the start line where your time will be manually recorded. Please make your way safely from the finish line back to transition where you will be able to cool down and catch your breath.

Please do not return to the finish line at any point after you have finished. This is to avoid any unnecessary contact.

Results will be posted online and emailed on early in the week following the event, please do not ask for your time at the finish. Please also be aware that results are recorded manually and while we make every effort to ensure accurate results, human error is possible. If any results appear incorrect, please let me know by email and I will endeavour to amend these before submitting to Go Tri.

I thank you for your support and patience as events were put on hold during Lockdown.

If you have any questions I haven’t answered here, please get in touch by email, social media or text and I will be happy to answer any questions.
