MK CITY TRAIL DUATHLON
The run is fast and flat…the bike route is certainly not! We’ve been given exclusive access by The Parks Trust to use the World Cup Cyclocross Circuit at Campbell Park as part of the cycle course. As you can see this is an event you don’t want to miss out on!
Many of you may be asking, “what exactly is Cyclocross?” well in basic terms it’s a race on non-paved roads, so picture a duathlon in the city with an off road cycle route (a bit muddy…maybe a lot muddy), partnered with a fast flat run – it sounds pretty cool right?
This is an event we are super excited about and wanted to give everyone the chance to take part, so we’ve got three distances for you to choose from. For the novices out there, who are just looking to dip their toe in the world of duathlons (and cyclocross) there’s the Taster Trail. For those who already have some experience or are using this event for a spot of training, the Tough Town distance is the one for you. Then for those of you who are looking to go all out and smash out a PB, the City Epic is your ultimate challenge for 2019. You can enter as an individual or even better, why not get your mates involved?
And for all of those budding adrenaline junkies out there the Taster Trail is for ages 10+ and for the little ones who don’t fancy competing we’ll also be putting on an Easter Egg Hunt (sorry adults, this is for the kids only!)
Our team took to their bikes to do a little reccy of the route, check out the video on our social pages and try and tell us that you’re not excited (maybe slightly scared) to take on the MK City Duathlon. Also, be sure to check out the race info pack for the important information you need to know before taking part.
Need more persuading? Ok, to wet your appetite we are planning a little free taster of the bike route in March. We’ll keep you posted, so keep your eyes peeled for more information.
See you out there!
