Perfect for a PB

  • Did the Standard Duathlon in 2019

    Great event in Newcastle and good route crossing the millennium bridge. Shame the bike route was 6 laps, a short patch of the route wasn't the smoothest surface.
    Overall good event, will definitely be considering entering next year.
  • Did the Sprint Duathlon in 2019

    Great first event, if on next year will defo do again. Shame about the weather but you can't have it all ways.
