Race feature: London Duathlon - Sunday, September 14, 2014

For those looking to inject some inspiration into their 2014 race calendar, look no further than London Duathlon, the world’s best duathlon in stunning Richmond Park, London on Sunday 14 September.

Runners, cyclists and triathletes can set themselves a new challenge to train for over the coming year with this annual run-bike-run event; which is the only sporting event to close the Park to all traffic.  

A duathlon is made up of two disciplines – running and cycling, but across three sets of activity (run-bike-run). Competitors first take on a run, then a cycle, before finishing with another run. The distances of each activity vary according to the challenge, with competitors transitioning between the disciplines similar to triathlon.
