Organiser's Description

Welcome To The Borders Triathletes Junior Off Road Duathlon


The Off Road Duathlon is organised by the Borders Triathletes Club with support from Bowhill Estate and Durty Events. This event is an off road bike followed by a trail run. As well as regulars to Duathlon this is an ideal event for newcomers to the sport as the bike and run are held on traffic free paths around Bowhill Estate. All competitors have the opportunity to come along to coached training sessions prior to the event ensuring everyone is ideally prepared as possible for race day.


When: Saturday 7th June 2020.

Where: Bowhill Country Estate, near Selkirk in the Scottish Borders.

Time: Registration is from 10.00am to 10.45am with the race starting at 11am.


The bike and run distances are determined by the age of the competitor. The age group the competitor belongs to is determined by the age of the competitor as at the end of December 2020. This mirrors Triathlon Scotland age group rules.

For example if on Race day, the competitor is 12, if the competitor turns 13 by the end of the year, this competitor belongs to the 13-16 age group.
