What you need to know about Duathlon

Duathlons were primarily created to allow triathletes to race during the winter months without the need to swim in cold lakes. It’s a running and cycling event that has become very popular in recent years, they’re great training races for triathlon and make an excellent step up from single running/cycling events. So, if you want to broaden your horizons and move into multi-disciplinary events, Duathlon is an excellent place to start.

Duathlons tend to follow the same distance structure as triathlons, although the format is typically ‘Run—Bike—Run’ meaning you start with a run, then transition to the bike, then transition back to running again. Duathlons come in Sprint, Standard and Long distances.

Different Duathlon event types

  • Sprint Duathlon: 5km run, 20km bike, 2.5km run
  • Standard Distance Duathlon: 10km run, 40km bike, 5km run
  • Long Distance Duathlon: 10km run, 150km bike, 30km run

These distances aren’t as standardised as Triathlons, so do check the exact course. Duathlon races can cover all terrains with opportunities to run cross country and mountain bike. We’ve curated some of our favourites below, good luck out there!

The Fugitive Duathlon 2018 Half Iron Distance in Marlow. This event is only long distance in the Thames Valley which will see record numbers of participants race against the clock.

Are you a Fugitive? The Fugitive Half Iron Distance gives you the chance to make a run for it and escape, racing only against the clock to see if you will get caught before its too late. With only the fastest over the line, before the cut off, only becoming free to runaway with a bespoke finishers medal and the honour of being from captivity.

The event is set to attract over 700 participants, as the world of endurance sports and triathlon creates massive demand for longer distance events over the shorter distances that have originally formed this great sport.

The Run course for the Olympic Distance is a 2 Lap 5km route on Tarmac and Grass Footpaths. It meanders back towards Marlow and into the finish at Higginson Park from the river towpath. The Sprint Distance is just a 1 Lap 5km route.
