The Jake Porter Duathlon

28 Apr 2024

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the event page for the 2024 Jake Porter Duathlon, hosted by the Shetland Triathlon Club. We’d love to see you get involved!


We are back, for our annual season opener Duathlon! It’s a great opportunity if you want to dip your toe into multi-sport events, especially if you are not keen on the swim. The event is held in memory of Jake Porter and raises money for the amazing charity: Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS), who offer a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions. As always, your support would be very much appreciated. 

The event is open to anyone aged 15 and over. (Age as on the 31st Dec 2024). 15-17 year olds will need parental consent to take part. 

Event Details

3km run – 17km bike – 3km run

The event will begin with a 3km (1.8 mile) run on a mix of road and gravel tracks, starting and finishing at the Cunningsburgh Hall. This will be followed by a scenic 17km (10.4 mile) bike leg which takes competitors southbound past Sandwick, before turning and heading back to Cunningsburgh. The event finishes with another loop of the 3km run. 

We expect a 10am start time.

The Run Route can be viewed here:

Team relay entries can be made up of either 3 members (where each member takes on a leg each), or 2 members where 1 member takes on 2 of the legs. (eg. 2 runs leaving the other member to do the cycle in between).

Prizegiving will be in the hall once all the competitors have finished. 

The Cunningsburgh Hall are hosting a Sunday Teas after the event, so there will be plenty of sandwiches, cake and hot drinks for competitors, friends, family and supporters.
