For several years Danny McLaughlin of Greenock Glenpark Harriers has been hosting his "Danny's Duathlon" as a small race for club members and friends, initially from Greenock Sports Centre, before moving to Gourock, which offers both a flat 5k run route and and fast 20k cycle route.
Now Danny is opening up this event for public entry, with the Gourock Duathlon taking place on Sunday 06th August 2017 at 9:30am
The course is flat and fast, suitable to both beginners and experienced athletes looking for quick times.
Run: The run is out and back along the Cloch Road, starting and finishing at Gourock Pool, with the turn just past the Western ferries terminal at McInroy's Point.
Cycle: The cycle route heads out to the end of the Cloch Road, before turning left up the dual carriageway, turning by going over the flyover at IBM, and heading back along the Cloch Rd to Gourock.
The event will be chip timed, by Finishline Timing, providing all the race splits and bike lap times.
All road-legal bikes are welcome, including mountain bikes, and your bike will be checked to ensure it is suitable prior to racking it in transition. The cycle will be non-drafting, so Tri/TT bikes with aerobars are allowed.
Hot food & refreshments, showers, toilets and warm areas are all available on site.
