Each year we run a series of Duathlons to keep you sharp over those long winter months. The races run from October to March and are suitable for both novices and experienced athletes. Relay teams are welcome usually one rider and one runner. The distances are 5k run, 17k bike, 5k run.
The races are all Sunday races, starting at 10am with registration from 9am and race brief at 9,45am. race HQ is Ulverston Tennis Centre, Priory Road, Ulverston
The 5k route is the same for part 1 and part 2. It is signed and marshalled. Route turns left out of tennis centre and proceeds along Priory Road to the Leisure Centre then turns left down West End Lane and then right down Brick Kiln Lane. The course continues to turn round at the sea and then returns by the same route. The route is flat and on largely un-footpathed country lanes.
The 17k route exits Tennis Centre, turning left onto Priory Road and proceeds along the coast road, B5087 until the village of Aldingham is reached. Cyclists take the second left turning, looping through the village and then turn right back onto the B5087 to return the same way. the route is undulating and notable for its coastal cross winds. Suitable for TT, road, hybrid and all road worthy bikes although disc wheels probably not a good idea if it's very windy! The route is signed and marshalled.
