The Anglian Water Duathlons offers the chance to shake off the winter and test your fitness at the start of the new season. Its picturesque setting in Cambridgeshire inspires first timers as well as those that have raced for national titles and Great Britain Age-Group qualification slots over the years.
This is a race for everyone and suited to all abilities, whether you’re at the front, middle or the back of the field we enjoy offering the big-race feel at this amazing venue. You’ll race along the tracks around the lake and woodland and enjoy one of the most picturesque settings for a duathlon that you are ever likely to race on. Both run sections take place on hard compound tracks and feature steady climbs at the outset, which obviously means you’ll be running downhill to the first transition and the finishing line. The bike course is along some of the smoothest roads. The long stretches will let you test your speed and the hill climbing will allow you to test your strength. We can predict about the Anglian Water Duathlon is a competitive and highly professional event at a stunning venue. What we can’t predict is the weather, so keep an eye on the forecasts to determine whether it’s trisuits or thermals and we’ll look forward to welcoming you on race day.
