Organiser's Description

A fantastic off-road duathlon for all abilities, whether you are racing for the first time or you’ve been round the block a few times and looking for your next hit! The venue is almost flat meaning that the fast people go even faster but those looking for a confidence boost are in the perfect environment.
The super speedy course makes for really close racing, in past editions the leading competitors have been separated by just a few seconds, and the lead position changed hands multiple times throughout, making exciting racing.

There are two distances to choose from at the Easter Off-road Duathlon; FullX and HalfX, both distances use very similar courses, the HalfX misses a short section of gravel road on the run and does fewer laps of the mtb route.

FullX Off-road Duathlon – The FullX race is open to those aged 16 and upwards. It consists of a 3.1km trail run, followed by approximately 16km of cross country mountain biking and then finishes with another lap of the 3.1km trail run.

FullX Relay – You can also join up with a partner and complete the FullX event in a Relay Team – one of you does all the trail running and the other does all the mountain biking.

HalfX/Youth Off-road Duathlon – The format is exactly the same as the FullX event; run, ride, run but the distance for the trail run is 2.7km, the mountain bike is approximately 8km and this event is open to anyone who is over the age of 14 on the day of the event.

Course Details

Run routes
Both the HalfX and FullX courses use a great mix of grass track, woodland trails and a short section of gravel road (FullX only). From an open field start you’ll make your way to a fun woodland trail that is about 600m long. Shortly after leaving the woods the HalfX competitors split away from the FullX course and cut off a short piece of gravel road before re-joining a tree lined footpath that winds its way back to the arena

Bike route
The route is the same for both FullX and HalfX 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. Again there’s not much uphill making the mountain biking great fun and very accessible to all abilities.

kit

All of the TrailX events are off road so you will need grippy running shoes (ideally trail shoes), and a mountain bike. Road, cyclocross and hybrid bikes are not permitted, neither are power assisted cycles. As for what you wear, it’s up to you – just needs to be something that you can comfortably run and ride in.

on the day

Registration will open from the time confirmed in your pre race email and will close 15 minutes before the start of your race.

The mountain bike course will be open for practice for at least 1hr30 before your race, please allow 20-30 minutes for a lap. Your bike must be in transition by at least 20 minutes before your race is scheduled to start (see event details) and you must have signed on at registration before racking your bike.

Only your bike, helmet, and cycling shoes (if applicable) can be placed in transition.

The race director will carry out a briefing at the transition area 15 minutes before the start of each race and will walk to the start line with you, during this time please ask any questions that you have.

  • It is compulsory that you attend the briefing
