“Each event offers something unique and gives people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to get active. I would encourage anyone looking for a challenge and thinking of applying to do it.

“Every participant will be cheered on throughout the race and with some stunning scenery forming part of our bike and run routes, we are sure that all competitors will have a great time.”

Local athlete Rachel Dekker has signed up to take part in her first duathlon event and is excited by the prospect.

“I enjoy a variety of sports, regularly playing tennis and trail/obstacle course races. I have never taken part in a duathlon so am really looking forward to the new challenge. It’s great that this event has something for everyone,” she said.
