  • Did the Olympic Duathlon in 2018

    I missed the new start time as I am not on the social media platform that was used and only had the last email at 4.30 on sat!So sadly I totally missed my event. That said the orgainser was amazing and gave me the start time and start line, Brillant, shame I had a very lonely race and only had people around me very late on. Great venue, great people, great distances, asked for a bananna at the end and was informed they were for 79.3 people!! Really!! So little things bring us back, more comms amongst the helpers so they know the drill. Thanks for really saving the day for me. Polly

  • Did the event in 2018

    It was a boiling hot day. The water was great ... wish I'd done one with a longer swim! Cycle course was fantastic. What a great track to go round, but missed the variety of longer courses. The run was grueling. Hot hot sun and no shade or variety. There was a sprinkler but it was turned off mysteriously on return leg of the run.
  • Did the event in 2017

    Human race always organise races well.efficient and easy to register online and on the day registration.fantastic venue, the course couldn't be simpler. Amazing atmosphere with families out, great spots to see athletes and cool stands. Erdinger always goes down a treat.
  • Did the event in 2017

    This is the second time I've completed Bananaman in the team time trial event, and I absolutely love it. Great value for money, easy to navigate and lovely atmosphere. The only criticism this year is lack of things to do for young kids, last year there was a bouncy castle, this year there wasn't anything for them.There was a kids scootathon which I will enter my boy in to next year.The swim is a bit of a fight at the start, but there is plenty of room to move to the side away from the action.The bike can get a bit boring with 6 laps, but it's pancake flat, and as a team it's great.The run is also not the most inspiring route, but it's flat and here you go up and down with all the spectators to your side.Aid stations were very limited with water and sis drink in cups only on the run.The best bit is LIDL provide a BBQ which  everyone, whether racing or not, can get involved for free. A lovely day and great value for money. I would have got more involved if more to do with the kids, last year people stayed around longer after their event, I think thy didn't this year owing to the lack of entertainment. I loved it though and will be back.https://pickupthepacepaul.wordpress.com/2017/07/08/bananaman-2017

  • Did the event in 2018

    I did the 10 k run option this year, after doing the aquathlon last year (can't swim at the moment due to wound on leg).  This is a multi-sport event with races starting off at different times, the 5 and 10 k runs were at 1000 am.Registration was easy, you can collect your number the day before (did this as local to me).  However, the timing chip wasn't available until the next day, but there was no queue to collect this.  There's no official baggage storage (most people leave these in their cars or in transition), but if you've come by tube/bike for the run you can leave it under the stairs by registration.The race starts by the lake, with the 5 k (one lap) and 10 k  (two) legs going together.  There were only 26 in the 10 k, so it's not too crowded.  The run initially goes around the lake, and then loops around the Merchant Taylors school sports field.  It's funny going past the pavillion whilst the criket teams are warming up, last year it was Middlesex and Sussex 2nd XIs there.  The grass surface is good for running and there are some nice long straights.  However, quite a bit is unshaded, so it can be a bit hot on the run.  You then head off for a second loop, and there is a water station as you start this.  There's only really support at the start/end/transition area, but the marshals around the course are all very good.  The DJ is enthusiastic as well.The medal is decent enough for a budget event, and a bottle of water is handed to you at the end.  There's a nice atmopshere and feel about the event, there's still a lot going on as people are coming in from the bike and tri events (having runners doing the 70.3 tri overtaking you at speed is quite humbling).  As there are permanent changing facilities, there's quite a few toilets available and the upstairs cafe/bar is lovely.  There's a reasonable amount of parking available, and not too far from the tube station at Moor Park.  All in all, it's a nice small multi-sport event, would probably do again as it's local, but may tri the aquathlon or swim next time.

  • Did the event in 2018

    I entered this race as I liked the mid week race, a good training race. Turns out it was highly competitive, with some good agegroupers as well as novice and relay racers. Lovely setting, hilly bike and run, but super sprint runs and sprint bike leg led to some fast times. Friendly yet professional organisation, a trademark of Matt and his arctic 1 team

  • Did the Ultra Duathlon 107k in 2018

    Absolutely loved it. If you want an event to really push yourself an Ultra Duathlon is the one.It is a little repetitive doing laps of Richmond Park but actually knowing where you are, what you have coming up and how long to go is helpful.The last 10k is the hardest thing i've done so the sense of accomplishment was awesome!!!Event is set up well, transition areas are good.So local to London means easy for friends and family to come and watch
  • Did the event in 2018

    Good location, great organisation, enjoyable throughout for the competitors. Easy for the spectators to watch the event. The scenery at Richmond Park provides with extra motivation (I think it's the best part). A really good one. I will do it again, I think it will be fixed on my calendar every year.
  • Did the event in 2018

    I was given a place in LD18 by the organisers as part of a competion but i would of happily paid for this one! Racing in Richmond park was a great experience and one i want to do again.

    The course was well marked and not as busy as i expected as it's the biggest duathlon in the world. Transition was good and spaced out well and clearly marked both with the ins and outs.

    Course was undulating for both bike and runs but clearly marked and marshalled. Lots of wildlife to see (Deer) en route and the roads are smooth and clean.

    I loved the wave starts rather than a mass free for all and my friends said the online tracker worked really well.

    As part of your entry you got a Descente cycling jersey. The jersey is a really nice piece of kit and not the normal cheap t shits you get at races. It will be my first choice fr training rides.

    The race village had a good choice of foods and drinks and a few merchandising outlets. My friends felt it needed a beer tent as it was a lovely hot day and they felt it would have helped their spectating!!

    I would definitely do this one again!

What you need to know about Duathlons

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!
