TrailX Autumn Duathlon
This is a fantastic off road duathlon for total newbees and experienced competitors alike. The venue is almost flat meaning the fast people go even faster but those looking for a confidence boost are in the perfect environment.
The super speedy course makes for mega close racing, the 2018 race was unbelievably close – in both the male and female races the top 2 were separated by under 12 seconds, and the lead position changed hands multiple times throughout.
There are two distances to chose from, FullX and HalfX, both distances use very similar courses, the HalfX misses a short section of gravel road on the run and does less laps of the mtb route!
FullX Off Road Duathlon – The Full X race is open to those aged 17 and upwards. It will consist of a 3.1km run, followed by approximately 15km on your mountain bike and then finishes with another lap of the 3.1km run.
HalfX/Youth Off Road Duathlon – The format is exactly the same as as the FullX event; run, ride, run but the distance for the run is 2.7km, the bike is approximately 8km and is open to anyone who is over the age of 14 on the day of the event.
— This is the rescheduled Easter Duathlon event from 11th April 2020. The race organiser will be in touch with you in due course if you have made a booking for this event. ---
This off road duathlon is held on a super compact course that’s relatively flat, making it great for both beginners and more experienced competitors.
The run route is a great mix of grass track, woodland trails and short section of gravel road (FullX only). The bike lap is the same for both Full and Half X and makes the most of the super twisty single track that this venue is known for.
The narrow woodland tracks are broken up by wide grass paths to make recovery and overtaking easy.
