Registration will be open on Saturday evening from 1500 – 16.30 at Mander Car park (venue) PE28 0BX Where possible, if you live nearby, please try and register on Saturday evening as this will allow you to have a lay in and relieves the wait in the morning.

Race Day registration is open from 07:00am In the visitors centre, follow the signs from the car park.

Please note: NOTHING WILL BE POSTED TO YOU;  Please ensure you arrive in plenty of time to register and prepare yourselves (the race will start at 08:30 with or without you).

At registration you will receive a race pack, which should contain the following items:

  • 2 x stickers: one to be attached to your helmet, other to you bike handle bars or seat post, NO stickers attached means you will NOT be allowed in to transition.
  • 1 x race numbers: to be attached to your back when biking and to be attached to your front when running- race belts are advisable. If you are not displaying a number you will not be allowed to continue from transition.
  • 1 x timing chip and strap: This must be attached to your LEFT ankle, No chip, no time. If you are unsure of how to attach the chip please refer to the instructions at registration.(Please do not lose your chip it will cost you £10 for a replacement)
  • Important: BTF Day race licences will need to be purchased at £5 on the day for those who are not members of the BTF.  Remember, no licence, no race (this is your insurance).


The The run route after all the rain is still hard under foot but there are some muddy puddles in places, if I were running I would still wear my road shoes, but that’s up to you… Cycle route is in great condition for some seriously fast speeds.


You will only be allowed into transition if you are wearing your race number as well as your bike and helmet having a corresponding number (all found in your registration pack). Your helmet must be on your head and fastened at the entrance to transition. Officials WILL BE checking that your helmet is correctly fitted, i.e. when fastened you should only be able to get two fingers under the strap. Please ensure it is adjusted correctly before trying to get in, you will be turned away if it’s not correct.

TRANSITION AND MOUNT (Racks will be numbered)

Bring only essential equipment into transition, bags will not be allowed next to your bikes and will be removed to the edge of transition. Bright coloured towels, talc, or any other forms of obvious position marking will be dealt with by the “Transition Official” resulting in time penalties. You have been warned ! Run into transition, find your bike, do not touch your bike until you have put you cycle helmet on and fastened it. Run with your bike out of transition via the exit marked with “bike out” signs. Do not get on your bike until you reach the marked mount line. Remember at this point your race number should be displayed on your back.


THIS IS A NON-DRAFTING RACE. (Drafting is cheating and will be dealt with as such)

Once on your bike, leave the park with a left hand turn taking extreme care as you join the carriage way. This junction is live to traffic, remember it’s not worth dying for! The bike course is on open roads with no road closures, so ensure you follow the Highway Code at all times. 


Once back in the park you will dismount your bike before the marked dismount line and run with your bike to the entrance marked bike in, rack it the same place you removed it from, you may then remove you helmet. Then run out will be at the opposite end of transition marked with “run out” signs. Ensure your race number is now facing forwards.


Your race number should be displayed on your front at all times while running, exit the transition and turn immediately right and follow the marked course (flags/ arrows/ and tapes) . Marshals will be on all major turns, please remember the paths are open to the public, please be courteous. There will be a water station as you exit transition and again as you pass transition and then the finish.

2018 ITU Standard Distance Qualifier (Draft Illegal)

2019 ETU Standard Distance Qualifier (Draft Illegal)

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. Whether you’re doing the sprint or the Standard distance, 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 dayanglian_water
