The Anglian Water Duathlons are two of the first of the season and give racers a chance to break out of the winter hibernation and get moving. The picturesque setting in Cambridgeshire attracts 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 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 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 allow you to test your speed and the hill climbing will allow you to test your strength.
