Hundred Acres Relay Duathlon
We are inviting teams of two to take part in this off road duathlon. The race will comprise 2 x 5k laps on the bike, 1 x 5k lap run, 2 x 5k laps on the bike, and ending with another 5k lap run.
We have been holding running events in the Forest of Bere for 5 years and it has proved to be one of our most popular venues. Yes, it's hilly, yes, it's muddy, yes it's challenging, but it's so much fun. Enter as an individual and then join in, or form your team of two. We don't care who does what, you can cycle both, or run both, or do one lap of each - as long as you do at least one of the legs!
