NEW FOR 2018 – CHOOSE YOUR BIKE! MTB OR ROAD BIKE – IF YOU CHOOSE MTB YOU RIDE WITHIN THE GROUNDS OF HOLE PARK. IF YOU CHOOSE ROAD YOU RIDE OUTSIDE HOLE PARK ON THE ROADS. RUN ROUTE IS THE SAME FOR BOTH.

With two different events to choose from Hole Park Duathlons will be held within the picturesque award-winning gardens and grounds of Hole Park with views of the Weald of Kent and as fair reaching as Hastings. The run section takes in views of Hole Park orchards, while the MTB section passes through fords, crosses bridges and over fields with some testing sections to spark up the fun. This event is ideal for everyone from the beginner MTB duathlete to proven professionals.

If riding a road bike you will exit the park and ride a route on the roads though the wonderful Kent countryside.
