The Marlborough Fun Duathlon on Sunday, 8 September 2019 is the fifth and final in a five race series, with road and mountain bike options.
The duathlon is a very achievable 2.3km run, 15km road cycle and another 2.3km run. The run is entirely off-road and mostly flat, with the cycle is on the quiet Taylor Pass Road. The mountain bike option includes a challenging 6km route around the mountain bike park. The kids race is suitable for kids up to year 8 and is completely off road.
These are no pressure events. If you are a beginner, then do not fear, you are not alone. You can run, walk, crawl or grovel your way around the run course, and as long as you have a safe bike and a helmet you're good to go! Enter as an individual or in a team of two/three.
