Here are some details about this Saturdays first duathlon of 2013:
START TIME = 9:30am
The course consists of a 5km run, 18.5km bike, 2km run. The races are handicapped with the weaker triathletes going first and the stronger triathletes going last. The aim is to have everyone finishing at the same time. It takes time to get your gear ready so make sure you always arrive 10 mins early to get things ready.Non club members are welcome to take part as long as they have a full Triathlon Ireland licence for 2013. All our own club members should have TI insurance.
• The 5km run route is on out and back route. It is quite hilly so make sure to pace yourself.
• A helmet is a requirement for the cycle. The duathlon bike route is the same as the triathlon route. It is an out and back course. You head in towards town and take a left at the first roundabout heading towards the Borrisokane road roundabout. This is the turnaround point and you head back towards Dromineer from here along the same road you came out. The bike route is flat but the road surface is poor in places.
