We are pleased to announce the return of the Tri Preston duathlon race series with support from Triathlon England!
What? The 1-4-1 event is a duathlon comprising approximate distances of a 1 mile run/4 mile cycle/1 mile run. The 2-8-2 is the same format, just double the distances 🙂
Both are perfect for novices who want a go at a very friendly, low-key event. There will be four events, once a month, from May until August making it perfect to monitor your progress.
Where? The duathlon will take part on the purpose made cycle track at the UCLan Sports Arena. In addition UCLan Sports Arena offer changing facilities and toilets together with a cafe where you can treat yourself to a hot drink and a meal afterwards. There will be Tri Preston Club coaches on hand to help competitors and offer some hints and tips.
When? This year’s events are on Sundays 6th May, 3rd June, 1st July and 5th August 2018.
The 1-4-1s start at 9:30am with registration from 9:00am and a race briefing at 9:15am. The 2-8-2s will start around 10.30 with a briefing at 10.15.
Spectators will be able to enter the Sports Arena without charge to watch you participate and cheer you on. There is a large car park near to the cycle track with a few overflow car parks available and there is no charge for parking.
How much? Each race is £10 per person. If you enter all four events we will give you a free annual membership*. All the more reason to get down to all four races. 🙂
Please ensure your bike is road worthy and helmets are compulsory. Marshals will be on hand to help set up your transition area and rack and check your bike.
