The Fugitive Sprint & Olympic Distance Duathlon

Marlow, Buckinghamshire

Organiser's Description

This event will take place in the beautiful town of Marlow. It will give you the chance to make a run for it and escape, racing against the clock to see if you will get caught before it's too late, with only the fastest over the line before the cut off, free to runaway with a bespoke finishers medal.

The bike course is out and back and apart from a couple of hills, is fast and flat. The run is on tarmac and grass footpaths, meandering back towards Marlow and into the finish at Higginson Park from the river tow path. Sprint and Olympic distances.

Marlow is best approached from either Jct4 of the M40 or Jct8/9 of the M4. Both take you onto the A404 (Marlow Bypass). Follow this to the Bisham roundabout and head through Bisham to Marlow Bridge. Cross over the bridge and turn left at the mini roundabout into Pound Lane. Higginson Park can be accessed either from the public car park at Court Garden Leisure Centre or by carrying on another 100m and turning left into the cricket club.

Race Registration is located in the Main Event Marquee in Higginson Park, Marlow.

Here you will be issued with your race numbers, bike stickers & timing chip.

You must have your numbers visible at all times during the race. If we cannot see your number, you may not get a time. Your timing chip is allocated to your race number. This chip will be affixed to a velcro band.

On race day, you must place the velcro band around your ankle. (Either one) Not your wrist.

NO TIMING CHIP = NO TIMING SPLIT OR FINISH TIME

If you lose it, we will charge you £10, SO DON’T LOSE IT.

If you lose your timing chip during the race, you will not receive timing splits, but we will endeavour to record a finish time for you if you shout your race number as you cross the finish line
