Grab a mate, one of you does the 27km MTB course, and the other the 18km run. It's always an exciting event as teams compete for the glory of winning the coveted Whitehorse Challenge Trophy.
Back again for 2021! Enter the duathlon as an individual and run the 12km track then jump on your bike and take on the 20km MTB course.
Note - you will start with the 12km runners and complete the run. You will then start the 20km MTB when this event officially starts (so depending on how fast you are, you may have time to change your kit or have a snack). Your two event times will then be combined to give you an overall duathlon event time.
Our run and walk courses are the same as last year. The 18km run takes you all the way to the top of the White Horse Hill, with stunning views. The popular 5km run or walk course that's achievable for all ages and abilities, and the 12km course which is somewhere in between.
Similar to the open bike, the run offers some testing hills, private farm tracks and a great view from the top of the Whitehorse Hill.
$50 - minimum age 16 at Jan 1 2021
