Glentress Duathlon

The Glentress Duathlon was a series of three races run in the winter months. It was held ten times, and the last race was 2012 with 100 entrants.

Each race consists of a Mountain Bike Cycle and a Hill Run, not necessarily in that order.

The races could be run as a solo or a team (one runner one cyclist).

The first race is medium with the winner is expected to cycle for 30 minutes and run for 30 minutes. The second is the short 20 minutes each and the third is the long 40 minutes each.

The course, bike and run, were always exceptional, laid out around all the obstacles area has to offer from fallen trees to forestry work.

The weather was usually varying, but last year the weather was kind, kind being a relative term.

It was very well run, and it had a fun atmosphere.
