This is a single day adventure duathlon race. Based in a former coal mine you will be running and cycling up to four sections, combining running trail, forest track, hills and an abandoned open cast mine. The cycle sections are on sealed tarmac roads of varying quality, from primary roads to quiet country lanes. With a choice of three different courses there is one for you to pit yourself against.
The 78km Elite and the 56km Sport will incorporate some of the longest drags and the fastest descents in the County. We are fortunate to have the picturesque Discovery Park as the central transition point for each section of the race. In this way you will always loop back to facilities and supporters who will get to spur you on throughout the race without them having to leave the comfort of the Park. The Park has a huge range of activities open for any active family members including a massive Zip-wire, a full restaurant and a craft village!
