Route information
The event is hosted at East Fortune Motor Circuit in East Lothian which provides fast and fun racing around the smooth tarmac and sweeping bends of this exciting new course. There is a range of distances for all levels and ages of athlete, from sprint distances to junior races.
Take on Scotland's only draft-legal race at this exhilarating, closed-road venue. There is also a non-drafting wave which is ideal for first-timers or those looking for an early season hit out on the TT bike.
Sprint Duathlon
The Sprint Distance courses consist of a 5k run, followed by a 20k ride, and then a 2.5k run to finish. There are separate Draft-Legal and Non-Drafting events, as well as a separate Female Wave and Open Wave (in accordance with British Triathlon’s Transgender Policy).
Run 1 - 5km
The run takes place on an out-and-back course mostly on the tarmac alongside the race track, with short sections on grass. The run course is flat and fast! After leaving the start, you will complete 2 laps of the run course. At the end of the second lap, you enter transition through the 'Run In' entrance.
Bike - 20km
The bike takes place on the smooth tarmac of the East Fortune race track. The track is 11m wide with plenty of fast-flowing corners. After leaving transition through the 'Bike Out' exit and mounting your bike, you will complete 9 anticlockwise laps of the race track. On the final lap you will peel off to the left before dismounting your bike and entering transition through the 'Bike In' entrance.
Run 2 - 2.5km
The second run takes place on the same course. After leaving transition through the 'Run Out' exit you will complete 1 lap of the run course before crossing the finish line.

Draft-Legal Kit
For draft-legal racing, you will need a roadworthy bicycle with traditional drop-style handlebars and brake levers. Importantly, you are not allowed to use time trial bikes or any form of clip-on aero bars. Wheels must have a minimum of 12 spokes, and therefore disc wheels are not allowed. A well-fitted helmet must be worn and fastened at all times during the bike leg.
Sustainability and Race Mementos
TriWorks is conscious of the environmental impact of their event and want to be part of the solution and not the problem. For this reason, they are only providing race T-shirts and finisher’s medals to those who would like them.
Triathlon Scotland Membership
In order to ensure you have adequate third-party insurance for the race, you will need a valid race licence. If you have Core or Ultimate membership of Triathlon Scotland (or Welsh Triathlon or Triathlon England), then this provides you with a race licence. You will be required to provide a physical or digital copy of your race licence at registration along with a photographic ID.
If you don't have a race licence you can purchase a British Triathlon Race Pass as part of your entry.
Race Belts
You will be provided with a race number at registration. This needs to be displayed to the front during the run sections and to the back during the cycle section. The easiest way to do this is with an elasticated race belt around your waist. You can either choose to provide your own race belt or purchase a Zone3 race belt alongside your entry.
Crowds
Spectator Info
The course is extremely spectator friendly, with friends and family being able to see almost all of the course from our race village and follow the action as it unfolds as well as providing support on every lap.
FAQs
What are the rules of draft-legal racing for the East Fortune Duathlon?
The majority of normal duathlon rules remain the same. The main differences relate to the type of bike you are allowed to ride, with aero bars and disc wheels not allowed. Importantly, you are also not allowed to draft off athletes of another gender or athletes on a different lap. We would recommend that you familiarise yourself with the British Triathlon Competition Rules.

Will there be medals at the East Fortune Duathlon?

What are the age requirements for the East Fortune Duathlon?
