Dartington Duathlon routes

The standard distance duathlon begins with a 10 km road run. This is two laps of our new 5k sprint distance duathlon course. The bike leg is 40 km and is two laps of our 20km sprint distance bike course. Both duathlons finish with 1 or 2 laps of our new 2.5K run course through Dartington Hall gardens.

We also added a GO TRI novice race. It starts with a lap of our 2.5K run course, then it’s two laps of a fast 5K bike course and then a final lap of the run course. nb It is not flat!

Volunteers

To run our events we need marshals. Ask any event organiser and most will say finding enough is an ongoing struggle. So put something back into the sport you love by helping at one of our events. It’s generally a fun morning (or afternoon) and competitors always appreciate support from the team of marshals. And as an extra incentive we’re happy to pay £20 expenses (or give you free entry to a future event) for anyone who helps out for 2-4 hours. Or we’ll pay up to £60 for anyone able to help for the whole day.

And if you’ve already entered but are injured we’ll defer your place FREE if you volunteer to marshal & pay you £20 expenses.

Just call or text us on 07866 567 894 or fill in the form at https://sportivaevents.co.uk/volunteer-help-marshall/. We’ll add you to our Volunteers list and get in touch a couple of weeks before our next event.

    Did the Sprint Distance in 2019

    This race has everything for novice or experienced duathlon runner. Great location. Marshals and route loved it and will be back next year for a PB.

    Did the Sprint Distance in 2019

    Great sprint course with a bit of everything, road, trail running with plenty of mud and several challenging climbs. A good up and back cycle route with a nasty climb at the end! Great supportive, encouraging, friendly marshals. My first duathlon but definitely not my last, my advice to first timers practice your transitions.

    Did the Sprint Distance in 2019

    A really good course which was slightly let down by the shear volume of rain the previous days making the second run treacherous underfoot.
  • Did the Standard Distance in 2019

    Very good organisation, friendly atmosphere, great venue. The run courses were excellent, challenging and varied. The bike course was difficult as the road is quite narrow and traffic queues form behind groups of slow cyclists in both directions. I don't know what the answer to this is but I got stuck behind a bus doing 10mph for at least 3 miles. Apart from that it was great, thank you
