The Jake Porter Duathlon

07 May 2023

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 Annual Jake Porter Duathlon, hosted by the SHetland Triathlon Club.

 

We are back, for our second post-COVID Duathlon! Its 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 in memory of Jake Porter and raises money for the excellent charity: CHAS, who provide hospice services for children and young people with life-shortening conditions. We would love to see you there. 

Due to restrictions on insurance for the event, all competitors must be over 16. 
 

Event Details

 

11am start from Tingwall Hall, competitors will run 2.1 miles around the main road loop clockwise, then following a quick change will cycle up north to a designated turn point around the 'half-way-house' to come back to the hall after 13.5 miles and then complete the course with an identical 2.1 mile run.

Team relay entries can be made up of either 3 members where each member takes on the run, cycle or run, 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)
