Welcome to the DUATHLON course option at Best in the West Triathlon Festival!
The duathlon course is the same as the triathlon course for each distance, except you don’t have to swim!
The duathlon will start just after the triathlon of the same distance on the same day as that tri.
Our duathlons are only 2 legs, bike then run. You will start in the transition area in a time trial fashion. We start the duathlon as the first swimmers of the triathlon are getting close to exiting the water. This puts the start of the half-iron du at about 8:25am, the Olympic du at about 8:15am and the sprint du at about 9:05am. Announcements will be made around the transition area to let you know when your start is.
During the duathlon you will bike and run in order, with the triathletes, on the same bike and run courses.
For more information about the swim and bike courses, please select your race distance and check out the maps.
