Off-Road Duathlon Update


Loads of stuff has been happening with the Bristol Off-Road Duathlon so we thought we would give everyone a quick update.

Firstly, entries are coming in fast so thanks to all of you who have entered so far, if you have entered online and chosen to send a cheque seperately, you need to send it off soon please as we are trying to keep on top of the entrants.

If you haven’t entered yet, then you can do so online via the tab on the right hand side of the homepage, or you can print off a form and send it to us in the post if you would prefer. As long as we get your entries by the closing date, we don’t mind how they come in! People have been asking if they can enter on the day and the answer to that is no, sorry guys but for  a number of reasons we are only accepting entries up until the week before so you need to get entered in advance.

We will be running a session on Sun the 18th where we will be riding around the course, so if anyone would like to see in advance what is coming up, we will be meeting at 10am at the Mansion House Car Park at the bottom of Ashton Court. The session will last for approximately 2 hours and will be fully coached in two ability groups, so if you are not a very confident rider you can pick up some tips on how to ride each section, and if you are just looking for a blast around the course, one of our faster coaches will be on hand to take you off for a spin too. This session costs £5 per rider. If you want to come along please let us know beforehand by e-mailing marc@sole-events.co.uk or by phoning 07894 144595.

Under Armour have now confirmed that they will be sponsoring the event and will be supplying prizes for the top 3 male and female as well as winners of the 40+, and the 50+ race, male and female. So plenty to race for if you are looking to pick up an end of season podium place. Easy Runner are also sponsoring the event and will be supplying goodie bags for each competitor.

We also have various companies coming along on the day who will be setting up stalls so you can see the latest gear on offer. We will have a mobile coffee van selling Tea’s, Coffee’s and soups as well as snacks. Thirst Solutions will also be coming along with their mobile drinks machines so you will be able to grab your post race drink from them…you will deserve it!

More news is happening every day so we will keep you updated with the latest as soon as we get it. If you or your friends are thinking of entering and have any questions you can always drop us a line and we will be happy to help, marc@sole-events.co.uk or call us on 07894 144595.

Train Smart and have fun
