Course Routes

5k Run:

25k Bike:

2.5k Run:

Note: The 5k Run course has changed from last year to avoid confusion, the route will be two laps of the 2.5k course. The Bike course has changed from previous years and we acknowledge the fact that it is slightly longer than the usual sprint duathlon length. The course was changed to eliminate a right turn across a busy road that caused unfair delays, and also due to safety concerns over the quality of road on the Nydie hill descent and the blind corner on it. The new course should provide a faster, fairer and safer race for all.

St Andrews Autumn Novice Duathlon 2024

The race is open to all and a perfect race for beginners. 

The race will also be a Run/Cycle/Run format with a shorter course of 2.5km/10km/2.5km.
