Triathlon Tauranga are once holding a Duathlon @ Maketu. Sorry we cannot offer a kids race @ this event.
These races will follow a slightly different format to your usual Duathlon race. It will still be run, bike, run but there will be breaks in between each discipline. It will be like doing 3 individual timed races. Some of the reasoning behind this is to provide members with valuable skills that are necessary these days to ride in bunches & also the event will keep the athletes compact & competitive.
This race next weekend will be something like a 3km run, 46km TT bike & 6-10km run. If we have good numbers we will also hold a short course option. We will be happy to accommodate peoples requests on varying lengths of each leg. There will be a rest period taken from the last person finishing. Then we all start the next leg.
Race 2 on July 22nd will be a longer TT bike & Bunch ride (45km) around the Tauranga Triathlon Club's TT Maketu loop. The course will start from Kaituna Rd, turning right into Te Tumu Rd, left into Kelly, onto Maketu Rd & then a sharp left back onto the far end of Kaituna Rd. back up Kaituna & then completing 4 laps to then finish back up the far end of Kaituna Rd.
