Organiser's Description

JOIN US FOR THE ESSEX DUATHLON ON SUNDAY 9th JANUARY 2022.

Kick start your 2022 multisport year with a run-bike-run event at the disused Debden Airfield. With distances ranging from a 5k-16k-5k Sprint for beginners, up to our 10k-64k-10k Middle distance for experienced duathletes, there really is something for everyone.

The run course is guaranteed traffic-free, using a 5km circuit around the flat airfield that maps out the shape of an airplane, (quite appropriate for the location).

The bike course winds its way around the beautiful country lanes, and with only 3 left-hand turns to negotiate each lap, its bound to leave you grinning from ear to ear.
