Club Championships

Are you a member of a sports club? Do you want to compete in a team against other sports teams from around the country? If you are participating in the standard duathlon distance, you can take part in our club championships! This unique competition allows people from a variety of sports to compete against each other to find out what sport really will triumph.

So are you a member of a rowing club and fancy your chances against the best triathlon club? Or do you think runners are better than cyclists? Gather your friends, get involved and show them what you’re made of.

How does it work?

To enter the club championships you simply need to enter a team of 5 or more into the standard duathlon to qualify and points will be awarded on the day for the amalgamated time of the top five finishers PLUS bonus points for the number of people entered from your team.

Everything was great, location, couse, marshals etc... all except the medal. Disappointing that whilst the medal itself is 'ok' .. after completing the Ultra, i would've expected a different medal to the relay and standard participants.
