17 sleeps until the first Scorching Duathlon for 2015
The first Scorching Duathon for 2015 is just around the corner. To be precise 17 sleeps or 2 and a bit weeks if you prefer a more vague sort of countdown. Either way it’s happening on Sunday 9 August 2015.
So if you want to show Mr Winter who is boss – we suggest lights, layers and action.
As per normal there is a range of course distances as well as team and individual options. So with something for everyone and whether you be a first timer or an experienced multisport soul we reckon you should give it a go. What else were you planning on doing on Sunday the 9th?

Scorching Duathlon overview for 9 August event:
Event Date: Sunday 9 August 2015
Location: Scorching Bay, Wellington, New Zealand
Race start: 9am
At this event you can expect something a little different from the typical duathlon format. It will instead consist of a run/cycle/run/cycle/run format.

There will be three event distances available (Novice, Short, and Medium) for individuals and teams.
