The Donut Duathlon, originally scheduled for the 3rd Sunday in March, was postponed due to the Coronavirus lock-down. We now plan to run it on Sunday 15th November 2020. If you’ve pre-entered you’ll be automatically moved to the new November date. Or we’ll move you to next year’s March 21st 2021 date instead on request.
The Donut Duathlon takes advantage of the Torbay Velopark to offer a fast, flat and completely traffic free duathlon course. Ideal for all ages & for beginners and seasoned athletes alike, the Donut will help kick start your season with a flat parkland run, a fast ride on the smooth tarmac of the Velopark followed by a shorter run to finish.
The Donut Duathlon is very family friendly. We also offer shorter distances for children aged 3 and above. Parents are welcome to run/bike alongside children under 8 in our mini duathlon. They can also help their kids with their bikes/scooters in transition.
And there’s also a Go Tri /Novice event for those new to the sport or who prefer a shorter race.
Medals and donuts for all finishers whichever race they’re doing! For this event any roadworthy bike will do: MTBs, hybrids or road bikes are all fine. In the Sprint race only drafting is permitted. But because some people don’t own a road bike we are allowing TT/triathlon bikes.
