The Jake Porter Duathlon
22 Apr 2018
Welcome to the event page for the Jake Porter Duathlon 2018
The Triathlon club renamed the Duathlon Champs after Jake in 2013 and provided an opportunity to raise money for CHAS (Children's Hospice Association 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.
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 (approx 2pm)
Sunday teas will be on in the hall throughout the event and after so please bring along friends and family to support you and the charity.
