Winter Duathlon – January Edition

The first Duathlon for 2015 will be at Ord Hill from the Forestry Commission car park, on Saturday 24th January Рstarting at 10.00am.

The event will consist of a 1 mile run loop on forest paths (red route) and a 2.5 mile bike loop on forest roads (blue route). The course will be open for an hour and the aim is to complete as many loops as you can. You can do 1 of each or keep going – up to you!

The run route is fairly muddy and has some steeper sections, and a couple of obstacles as of Wednesday evening but lots of fun! The bike route is non-technical suitable for hybrids, cyclocross or MTBs.

As the event is being run under the Outdoor Access Code the maximum number of participants is 40 so please arrive promptly at 9.30am to register.

IMPORTANT BITS: You are responsible for your bike being in good working order with safe, fully functioning brakes. You MUST wear a helmet at all times while mounted. You will be using public paths and MUST ride and run in a responsible manner following the Outdoor Access Code. Please carry emergency contact details on your person e.g. name and phone number and any medical details.

Children under 12 years MUST be accompanied throughout the course to ensure their safety and to keep them on course.

There will be very limited route signage on the course – the permanent blue/red route posts will be there – it is your responsibility not to get lost! Check out the route map below.

See you all there!!
