Xtreme Terrain Festival duathlon

Thursday, 09. 4. 2008  –  Category: Mountain biking, Running

I’ve entered a duathlon, coming up in 4 weeks time. The Xtreme Terrain Festival is taking place at Hawley Lake, Camberley, and offers a choice of events from:

  • 10k cross country run
  • Off road duathlon – run, bike, run
  • Off road triathlon – swim, bike, run
  • Xtreme Terrain Aquathon – swim, run

There are sprint and full distances for both the triathlons and duathlons. I’ve gone for the full distance duathlon which is 10k run, 24k moutain bike, followed by 5k run to finish.

I haven’t thought about a target time yet, having never done a multi-dicipline event like this. In fact, I’ve only ever done about 3 or 4 running events. The recent Tough Guy race has given me a taste for running again though, so looking forward to this one.

Will be interesting to see how the mountain bike section works out. I fancy myself as an OK cyclist who doesn’t push himself enough, so look forward to coming unstuck on this course!

Might dust of the helmet cam I’ve used snowboarding and see about attaching it to my handlebars to try and capture some footage. In the meantime here is a taster of the event from YouTube…

    I’m just taking part. It’s next weekend, so just time for one last decent run (not done much recently) and a few cycles. Maybe combine the run on Sunday with some cycling and a second short run to practice the duathlon experience.
