Wild Deer Events bring you this BRAND NEW EVENT at our home venue, Chopwell Woods.
Our first ever trail event was at Chopwell Woods and in June this year we have designed a duathlon event taking in all this magnificent wood has to offer.
The first run of 5km takes in the woodland north of the main car park on fire roads, trails and woodland. Once that run is complete, the transition area is on the grass just down from the main car park area.
The cycle of 10km will head south and take in a large, testing loop of the forest along fire roads and trails before heading back up for your second transition. Competitors will leave their bikes and head down again to complete a 2.5k loop around the woodland.
Mountain, hybrid, gravel or cyclocross bikes may be used, it is not suitable for road bikes/tyres. The finish will be near the transition area.
There is FREE parking at this event as well as portable toilets on site.
Competitors will be set off in groups to allow for social distancing and all other COVID-19 Guidelines will be met to keep us all safe.
CHIP TIMED, all finishers will receive an EVENT TECHNICAL T-SHIRT, FOOD & A BEER OR SOFT DRINK. When entering please put your estimated 5km running time to allow us to group runners. If you wish to compete with a friend please form a team on entry and give yourselves a team name.
Numbers for the event are limited so get signed up ASAP!
