Bedford Autodrome will be hosting its annual duathlon which is a non draft-legal event. There are sprint or standard distances on offer and they act as GB age-group qualifiers. The course is based around the Thurleigh Airfield, which is now turned into a motor racing track.
Designed from scratch by former F1 driver Jonathan Palmer, there is nowhere else in the world like Bedford Autodrome. The venue has been purpose-built for speed and space, containing four entirely distinct circuits and over 5 miles of track laid out across a 384-acre site, with vast run-off areas that provide optimum safety.
