In response to the cancelling of our and many other clubs events due to Covid-19 we have decided to put on a Virtual Duathlon that is open to all and completely free of charge.
We are very aware that there are lots of virtual races and challenges going on at the moment but there are very few aimed at younger athletes, so we have put together distances for all age groups from TriStart through to Adults (we wouldn’t leave you out!!)
How does a Virtual Duathlon work? A virtual duathlon is a race that can be completed at any location. For the run (or walk): You can walk, use a treadmill, run or walk outside or participate in another race. For the bike ride: You can cycle on a static bike, a gym bike, a recumbent bike or cycle outside. You can complete your virtual duathlon in your own time, at your own pace, anywhere in the world. Transition times will not be included but in the spirit of the challenge please keep this time to a minimum. Once you’ve completed your duathlon, simply send us your times and evidence (via the link below) of your completion of the distances
- A photos/or screen shots of your fitbit/strava/garmin etc showing your distances and times
- A photos of the treadmill or bike display showing your distances and times
If you don't have a smart watch don't worry, there are plenty of free apps available for your smartphone that will log times and distances for you: Strava, MapMyRun, MapMyRide, MapMyWalk, MyFitnessPal and GoogleFit to name but a few. Installing and using them is simple and straightforward, and helps you to keep track of your fitness.
All time submissions are to be done by Midnight on Sunday 12th July
All activities are carried out at your own risk and Torfaen Triathlon accepts no responsibility for damage or injury caused, all precautions should be taken to ensure your safety including adhering to Social Distancing guidelines.
Although we are running this in place of our TriStars event it does not count towards any TriStar Series. There will be a results table so that you can compare yourself against others in your category.
Souvenir race t-shirts are available, please complete the form and we will send you an invoice for payment (£10 each) Please note these may take some time to arrive due to delays in production as a result of current restrictions.
Good Luck! and why not share your race day photos with us on Social Media!
And don’t forget to get your Family, Friends and Clubmates involved too!
