Bowhill Junior Off Road Duathlon

13 May 18

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: Sunday 13th May 2018.

Where: Bowhill Country Park, 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 2018. This mirrors Triathlon Scotland age group rules.

For example on 7th May (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.

 

Age Group      Run1            Bike        Run2

8-12 yrs          800m Loop    1.5Km     200m Loop

The entry fee (for both age groups) is £10.

The entry fee is also subject to a further 5% surcharge for credit/debit card handling.

Borders Triathletes organise 3 Junior events throughout the year, MTB Duathlon at Bowhill (May), Aquathon in Selkirk (June) and a Triathlon in Galashiels (September). All events can be found on Entry Central.   

Additional Junior Duathlon Coached Training Sessions

New to Duathlon? Interested in learning or topping up your bike / transistion / run skills? The Borders Triathletes Club are holding 3 additional training sessions in the weeks leading up to the race. These 1 hour training sessions are held at Bowhill Estate, meeting at 6pm outside the Bowhill Coffee Shop on the following dates:-

  • Tuesday 24th April
  • Tuesday 1st May
  • Tuesday 8th May 

For the purposes of insurance all non-members attending the training will be required to join the club, this is a one off charge of £6, you can do this by clicking here or you can make payment in cash when you turn up for the 1st day of training. Membership to the Tri club will ensure you get updates on future events and are eligible for any further training.

There is no need to sign up for these training sessions, it is possible to just turn up on the day. However if you are definitely coming along then it would be useful for the club to know in advance so if you could email Katrona Methven, Borders Triathletes Junior Development Officer using email address  then that would be helpful.
