The Bristol Off Road Duathlon will take place on Oct 25th 2009 at 10am.
Taking place at Ashton Court in South Bristol, with easy links from the M5 motorway, Bristol Airport and Bristol Temple Meads train station, the event is sure to attract a large field for this rare opportunity to race in this beautiful venue, completely off road, yet only 5 minutes from one of the largest cities in the country.
The event itself consists of a 5km undulating run, followed by a 20km mountainbike course which follows much of the same route as the hugely popular and excellent Bristol Bike Fest, before completing a second loop of the 5km run course.
This will be completely off-road, with various challenges facing riders, from the infamous Timberland Trail, technical and muddy sections, to fast descents and long flowing climbs, sure to test the mettle of every rider, and yet be achieveable by all at the same time.
The event is already attracting interest from a number of high profile athletes as well as club and novice athletes from across the country. Kit Stokes, Age Group winner and course record holder of Half Ironman UK has confirmed that he will be racing, as have a number of other local high profile racers.
