The Midlands Off Road Series launches at the Clumber Park Off Road Duathlon – with the next two events taking place on November 8 and 29. This event, say the organisers, will get your blood pumping and your heart pounding, not least as it’s set in the beautiful Clumber Park National Trust property.
The same 5k run, 16k bike, 3k run formula is used throughout the series with the Clumber Park run taking place on a combination of road and trail (with the odd hill to test the legs) and the single track bike route offering technical sections interspersed with wide open sections that will give athletes that all important opportunity to overtake the competition. Taking part in the full Midlands Off Road Series gives athletes the chance to battle it out for overall dominance.
Entry to the Clumber Park Off Road Duathlon is £30 individuals (£35 non-BTF members) and £40 for team entry (plus £5 for non-BTF members.) Full details and entry at onestepbeyond.org.uk
Entry for the full series is £85 for an individual (non-BTF +£15) and £115 (non-BTF +£15 each) for relay team entry.
