Dartington Duathlon routes

Standard Distance: Kicks off with two 5KM laps on tarmac and gravel pathways. Then riders jump on their bikes for two 20KM laps of the sprint distance bike course. Finally, rounding it all out with a 2.5KM run circuit.

Sprint Distance: This route follows the same path of the Standard distance, but racers completes only one lap of each element.

GO TRI Novice Race: A new addition race-day this awesome little race is perfect for newbies. Starting with a lap of 2.5K run course, participants then move onto two laps of the fast bike course and round it all out with one more lap on the run course. But do not be fooled, this route may be short but it has some serious hills.

    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
