I have really enjoyed Manchester Airport Duathlon few weeks ago. This was the first race after a very long time for me so I was a bit nervous but the atmosphere was very relaxed and that put me in ease. Short distances were just enough to challenge myself. Lovely cycling route around countryside as well. Thanks for organising great simple event.
They are perfect for beginners, right through to experienced triathletes. The events are extremely friendly and very relaxed. They are a great mix between fun and competition.
Both events are run brilliantly. The bike routes on both take place on two amazingly scenic courses. The events offer something for everyone. Very accessible to people dipping their toes into multi sport events for the first time, to having a great option for seasoned athletes.
Our Shrewsbury Duathlon is a run-bike-run event hosted at Shrewsbury Sports Village. Making use of their superb facilities you will be running and cycling on their purpose built cycle track. There is no road cycling or running at this event making it extra safe for all of our entrants. Everything takes place within the sports village grounds.
