The Jake Porter Duathlon

05 Apr 2020

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 Jake Porter Duathlon 2020


The Triathlon club renamed the Duathlon Champs after Jake in 2013 and provided an opportunity to raise money for CHAS (Children Hospices Across Scotland). Jake was known to many of the club members and so we thought this was a great opportunity to raise money for a great cause. 


We are encouraging people to come and have a go at a run-cycle-run, either individually or in teams. 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 to come back to the hall after 13.5 miles and then complete the course with an identical 2.1 mile run. 

To view the cycle route, please go to: 


Entry fee - £18 for Individuals and £26 for Team entry. 

All money made from entries will be paid to the charity after any small running costs have been taken into account.


All abilities are welcome, competitors must have a roadworthy bike and wear a helmet at all times whilst on the bike.


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)


Registration: Individuals and teams should register between 9.45am and 10:30 am to collect race number and bike rack slots. 

The Race: The race brief will be at 10:30am for relay teams and at 10.45 for individuals. All competitors must attend the race brief. 

The race will then start at 11:00am

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

Informal tea and fancies will be in the hall afterwards. So can have a yarn with your fellow competitors of how you have got on.
