Duathlon Events 2013
Starting at the Clickem Inn, our popular club duathlon series includes either a 10 mile or 14 mile bike leg through the surrounding Lincolnshire countryside. Combined with a 1 or 2 mile undulating run along a quiet country lane, these events are an ideal training session for novices and experienced triathletes alike. Course Maps (PDF)

Some new additions to the duathlon dates-I have challenged Wolds Vets Running Club to a fixture eg us against them-winners decided by the team who gets the lowest score in terms of race positions totalled up by both teams at the end of the race-so don’t let me down !!
I apologise for not organising the points system last season but it did not really work with the age categories due to the small numbers involved. In terms of our points system this year -to keep it simple and to determine overall male and female champion I have decided to base it on the competitors with the lowest score based on race position to be the winner-minimum of best 8 to count. There will be a vets category-over 50 so Dave Plunkitt will be alright !!
All races are currently at the Clickem Inn but I may change the venue to Rothwell if the landlord and police are obliging!!
Swimming should be back on at Havelock this Monday evening.
Please keep us up dated on any races/events you are involved with so we can post your results
Karen Hames is organising a swim coaching session at Louth Meridien Centre next Sunday 17th March so if you are interested and would like details then let me know and I will forward details
Best wishes to you all-roll on spring!!
