The Katie Hewison Chorley Duathlon is taking place on May 7th in Chorley’s Astley Park.
The event is an off road run-bike-run race supported by former World and European Duathlon Champion Katie Hewison. Anyone aged 5-19 can take part with all abilities welcome.
The Duathlon will incorporate the Chorley Schools Duathlon event with the winning school going on to represent Chorley at the Lancashire Games. Any junior who attends a Chorley school will earn points for their Primary or Secondary school, whatever distance they complete.
The race is also part of the North West Junior Triathlon Series, the Tristar categories will have both local school pupils giving Duathlon a go for the first time, alongside North West athletes who have chosen Triathon to train towards as a weekly activity.
All categories will be chip timed, with the exception of the Youngsters. All young people are encouraged to complete their chosen distance and receive a medal.
The event will be held on the central field of Astley Park, Chorley, with all sections being completed on grass.
Any bike type is permitted. Helmets must be worn, and bikes must be in a road worthy condition.
Organised by Chorley Athletic & Triathlon Club, the event will be run with the support of Chorley School Sport Partnership and Chorley Council.
