Whinlatter Off Road Duathlon
Trail running & Mountain Biking in the Lake District. A spectacular course with stunning mountain scenery which should provide a thrill for duathletes and an off-season focus for triathletes. Part of the HighTerrain Events Winter Duathlon Series.
Due to current forestry operations the mtb route is to be amended and will no longer include the South trail. The amended 18k mountain bike route will now involve the initial two stages of the Quercas Blue trail followed by one full circuit of the North Red trail, with a few additional sections. This will now make it a slightly shorter route of 16km.
Both run routes are now to be the same.
A challenging off road event in the northern Lake District. Whinlatter Duathlon attracts all abilities, whether you are an experienced athlete or new to multisport. The event consists of a 6km trail run, followed by a 16km MTB incorporating the Quercus and Altura bike trails, finishing with a final 6km trail run.
This year the event will start outside Cyclewise. The transition will be located on the forest track above the mtb trailhead. The finish area will be based adjacent to Cyclewise (same as previously). Event numbers will be issued at registration which will be open between 8.00am and 9.30am on the Sunday.
