Nicetri events are ready for you to start the season early with this February event on 19.02.2017, shake off the winter and test your fitness for the start of the season.
The Anglian Water Duathlon offers a picturesque setting in Cambridgeshire which inspires first-timers as well as those who have raced for national titles and the Great Britain Age-Group qualification. This is a race for everyone and suited to all abilities.
Both race distances take entrants on a picturesque race around the local lake and woodland. 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 contains long. smooth stretches which allow fast intervals of speed, whilst also including climbing hill intervals to test your strength.
Due to the early season start, it is advised you regularly check the weather before the race. Whether it’s trisuits or thermals, it’s sure to be an exciting race day.
Sprint: 5km run / 20km bike / 5km run
Standard: 10km run / 40km bike / 5km run
Parking will be at the venue “Mander car park” (weather permitting, if wet follow marshals and signs to local car parks). Race packs will be collected upon registration on the day of the event. All participants receive a race brief email, and the full race details will be available on site two days prior to the event. Registration takes place between 7 and 8am on race day, with early arrival recommended.
Race Number and Chip Timing
All race entrants are issued with a race number which must be clearly visible at all times. Nicetri also provide number markings on entrants' hands with a pen. Your number needs to be displayed at all times to be used as a backup to the electronic chipping system. Each entrant is provided a computerised chip timing which should be attached to the left ankle. To ensure accurate chip feedback it is essential to run over the timing mats at the various marked stations. Results include finish time and splits which will be available shortly after the completion of the event.
Transition areas are protected by security and competitors will need to show their I.D to be allowed in or out of this area. Prior to entering transition your race number and bike and helmet labels must be attached. Your bike will have a designated transition area and a helmet must be worn at all times.
Prizes will be awarded for both first positioning men and women, and every entrant will receive a goodie bag.
