The Land of the Giants Duathlon will once again take place through the streets of Claremorris on Saturday, December 28th, starting at 10.30am.
The event will start at The Square in Claremorris and the run will be followed by a 6k cycle. The second run takes the athletes on a 2k anti-clockwise run around Clare Lake before running back to The Square for the finish.
The event has already attracted some big names and it is expected to have a big field in excess of 300 participants. Red tag timing will record the timing of the event so all the splits will be available to every finisher.
A team element will be added to this year’s event – one person does the first run of 5k and the last 2k to the finish and the other person does the cycle.
The event is open to all abilities – all that is required is that you are healthy and up for a post Christmas challenge.
