GOTRI DUATHLON - SUMMER #1
--- This race has had to be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic ---
A relaxed duathlon on a closed-road circuit - great for beginners starting out in multisport or more experienced athletes looking to get ready for a big race.
The race starts at 7.30pm (both distances).
The race starts at 7:30pm. You should arrive at 7pm to give you time to register and set up your transition before the pre-race briefing at 7:15pm.
What you must bring:
- clothes to run / cycle
- running shoes
- bicycle *
Your bicycle must be safe for you to operate, and safe for those cycling around you. You may be excluded if there are any additions / ommissions to the bike that pose a danger to you or others. Road bikes can be hired from the velodrome - see FAQs.
What you should also consider bringing:
- windproof cycling jacket that is tight fitting but easy to get on / off - you will get hot and sweaty on the first run, and you can get cold on the bike leg
- cycling shoes - not required but very useful
- warm change of clothes for after the race
- drink and a snack
The course is run in an anti-clockwise direction, so you will always be on the right hand side when you go under the footbridge. You will be running on the inside (left hand side) of the track, and cycling in the middle and outside (right hand side) of the track. Please take particular care during the corners.
When running, please keep to the left hand kerb and overtake as quickly as possible. When cycling, please keep to the left and allow room for two people running side-by-side on the inside of the track and overtake on the right. Please be vocal when overtaking other cyclists - as you approach from behind, shout "On your right!"
