Devon Duathlon Postponed
Unfortunately we have some bad news about this weekend’s Devon Duathlon. Public Health England had a meeting with Bicton College & has put them under pressure to cancel all external events. This is mainly due to the students particularly the vulnerable ones. Apparently the principal of Bicton tried to argue our corner & explained that the event was being held entirely outside but to no avail. So for the time being all external events at Bicton College are cancelled.
We looked at trying to move the event to the Bicton Arena next door but unfortunately the Bicton International Horse Trials, the biggest event there of the whole year, is taking place this weekend.
We are now hoping to move the event to the Bicton Arena on a Sunday in November & hope to confirm a date early next week. The bike course will be virtually unchanged & with only minor changes to the run course. We hope most of you will be able to attend the new date. But for those who can’t we’ll be offering a credit for another event or a refund.
