Jenni Falconer gets set to motivate the masses as London Duathlon's celebrity ambassador

This year, London Duathlon welcomes TV and radio presenter, Jenni Falconer on board as its official 2014 celebrity ambassador.

As a keen runner in and out of training, it was an easy decision for the mum of one take on the role of ambassador and motivate the masses to ditch their routine for something a little bit different. As a seasoned marathon runner, Jenni is stepping into the world multi-sport to encourage athletes of all levels to take on a run-bike-run challenge this autumn. Taking place on Sunday September 14th, London Duathlon is the world’s best Duathlon and is held in the stunning surroundings of Richmond Park on closed roads to ensure a stress free race to remember.

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

Jenni Falconer commented: “The beauty of London Duathlon is that there is a race for everyone. Whether you are starting out on your first run-bike-run experience with the Super Sprint or are a seasoned pro ready to take on the Ultra – there is a challenge to suit all.

“The event combines two of my favourite pastimes with running one of my favourite ways to unwind after a stressful day, while at the weekends I love cycling with my family as a way to keep fit. London Duathlon combines the two with a fantastic event village to keep the family entertained while you race. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy an unforgettable Sunday.’

London Duathlon offers four individual and one team challenge:

  • Super Sprint – the ideal distance for those new to multi-sports and aiming to set themselves a fresh personal challenge. Broken down into a 5K run, 11K cycle and 5K run, providing an achievable race for all abilities. Entry from £68.00
  • Sprint - suited to those short-distance specialists wanting to give themselves a new challenge over a 10K run, 22K cycle and 5K run. Entry from £70.00
  • Classic – the most popular distance at the world’s best duathlon testing duathletes over a 10K run, 44K cycle and 5K run distance. Entry from £80
  • Ultra – for the very toughest out there! The biggest challenge in multi-sports with participants taking on a 20K run, 77K cycle and finishing with a 10K run. Watch out for those jelly-legs after the cycle! Entry from £120.00
  • Classic Relay – get the team together and split the challenge between two or three friends each taking on one discipline over a 10K run, 44K cycle and 5K run. Entry from £125.00


On Sunday 14 September duathletes will be able to enjoy much more than just a race as the London Duathlon festival comes to Richmond Park. Duathletes, along with friends and family, can soak up the atmosphere and savour their achievements with organic food and drink stalls, the best in family entertainment as well as the opportunity to pick up the latest in sporting equipment and apparel.
