Organiser's Description

East Fortune Duathlon

 

Run 5km | Bike 20km | Run 2.5km

 

Back for a second year, TriWorks are proud to bring you the East Fortune Duathlon. Scotland’s only draft-legal multisport race. 

 

The event is hosted at East Fortune motor racing circuit which promises to provide fast and fun racing around the smooth tarmac and sweeping bends of this exciting new course. 

 

If this is your first duathlon, this is the perfect race for you. Expect a warm welcome, a friendly atmosphere and a flat, safe and fun course. The race track is 11m wide, so there is plenty of space for everybody. However, we also have a non-drafting wave which is perfect if you just want to focus on your own race.

 

If you are a seasoned triathlete, runner or cyclist, or a potential future champion, expect some hot competition at the front of the race and enjoy the fast, fun and tactical nature of draft-legal racing.

 

Sprint Duathlon (and Age Group European Championship Qualifier)

 

The Sprint Distance Draft-Legal Duathlon consists of a 5km run, followed by a 20km bike and finishing with a 2.5km run. There will be a separate Female Wave alongside an Open Wave (in accordance with British Triathlon’s Transgender Policy).

 

We are delighted to annoucne that the 2024 East Fortune Duathlon will be a qualifier for the European Sprint Distance Duathlon Championships in 2025.

 

To be eligible to qualify you must be either a Core or Ultimate Home Nations member and be a British Citizen. You must also register to qualify before the race via the British Triathlon Website.

Non-Drafting Sprint Duathlon

 

The Non-Drafting Sprint Duathlon also consists of a 5km run, followed by a 20km bike and finishing with a 2.5km run on the same course. There will be a single Open Wave and cyclists will be required to maintain a 10m distance from the rider in front unless they are overtaking. This is the perfect race if you are new to the sport or want to gain more confidence on the bike before joining a draft-legal race.

 

Juniors

 

We are also offering a range of super sprint duathlons for the Tristar 1, 2, 3 and Youth age groups. We are excited to be supporting the next generation of athletes and helping encourage juniors into the wonderful world of multisport racing. These races are very accessible and perfect for anyone looking for their first multisport experience as well as providing important draft-legal racing practice for those aiming for future success.
