The Dirty Devil Duathlon is what it says on the tin, a duathlon thats going to get you dirty! A 5k run around the incredible army tank training facility at Bovington Tank range, mud, hills, water, grit, water, mud, hills… you get the idea right? A 20k’ish balls out flying off road mountain bike experience (depending on the weather) on tracks with technical single track, down hills, puddles, forest, climbs… we could go on and on and another 5k run, similar to the first but this time finishing off with the knife edge! The iconic views of tanks crashing over the top of this thing has been plentiful and for a third year we have been granted permission to use this location as a total mud running, mountain biking festival.

So what are you waiting for? get your mud love on and come and join us for this awesome off road duathlon at possibly one of the best locations in the country for some Dirty Devil fun. See you on the start line mud munchers!

    Brilliant, first time for us as a group of mates and we will be back! Really well organised, challenging course - awesome event.
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    Tough but fun mtb/cross duathlon. Well organised. Good marshalling and signage. Would have been good to have a few more technical sections on the bike though.
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    This was a tough but great race. Well organised and marshalled with a fantastic friendly atmosphere. The course was challenging and the terrain varied - be prepared to get wet and muddy. My only criticism was a short section of the mtb course that was impassable mounted on a bike; it would have been better to have skirted round this section.Overall a very enjoyable race. Highly recommended
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    This is the fifth year ive done this, i was faster last year despite the fact that the run was laster last year but i Had a mechanical this year. Challenging as always, its difficult to train for the type of terrain but thats what i like challenges. The muddy section on the Bike was a bit out of place, if there was more of it then it would add more of a challenge but it was very short so it broke the rythm of the ride, the ride is still challenging. The run is just a slog but another challenge especially the second time round . Definately do it again, once the bike is repaired
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    Brilliant event run by the always excellent Bustinskin events. Puddles, puddles and more puddles with sand, gravel and mud thrown in for good measure. Very challenging course and am opportunity to mess about on MOD land without getting shot
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    Great event, challenging course especially when wet but still achievable and enjoyable. Well organised with friendly staff and Marshalls.
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    The Bustinskin club always organise fantastic events which are very professionally organised with excellent support from Marshalls/club members. My only criticism would be that the diversion on the bike route wasnt needed as didnt see anyone cycle it (unless that was the idea?!)
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    This race is brilliant. The atmosphere with music playing was brilliant. Everyone was helpful & friendly. A must do for some early season muddy fun!!
