Scott Clinic Race #3 - The Hits Duathlon
The rain stayed away for The Hits Duathlon at Twyford School and made for really pleasant racing conditions. Nice to meet a few newbies at the event. A big thanks to Twyford School and AgCrop Orchard for the use of their land and facilities. You will be pleased to know we have acquired a new starting horn! Well done to all of you who took part, please view full results (here)
Upcoming Event THIS Sunday
Scott Clinic Duathlon Series Race #4 - "The Hub 2Up" Duathlon
This weekend is our fourth event in the Scott Clinic Duathlon Series- "The Hub 2Up" Duathlon being held at Haumoana School. This is an unique team event, where two people complete the entire course side by side (staying within 5 metres of each other at all times). If you don't have a teammate please don't let that discourage you from entering as we will do our best to partner you up with someone on the day. Drafting on the cycle leg is allowed for this event.
The forecast is perfect! Various distances available to suit all fitness levels. Please enter online NOW (to avoid the on-the-day extra registration costs). We have some great spot prizes from The Hub Cycle Centre and our awesome sponsors. To enter please click HERE
