Race preview: Eridge Park Duathlon and Orienteering Festival - Sunday July 10, 2011
The first Eridge Park off-road Duathlon and Orienteering Festival takes place on Sunday 10th July and is set to be a fantastic day out with something for everyone.
Set in the beautiful grounds of Eridge Park, which is just south of Tunbridge Wells, participants can look forward to stunning views, challenging terrain through woodlands, park and trail, and a smorgasbord of running, mountain biking and orienteering.
‘This is a really exciting event for us’ commented Race Organiser Mark Shaw ‘We are working with Tunbridge Wells Harriers, organisers of the award winning Eridge Park 10 and Tunbridge Wells Half Marathon, and also Saxons Orienteering club to organise the festival. We hope to offer something completely different and fantastic fun. It’s an honour to open and share Eridge Park for this special event and it promises to be a thrilling day’.
Numerous events are on offer, including an off-road duathlon (5km run, 14km bike, 5km run) which can be tackled as an individual or relay team, and a choice of 5km or 10km orienteering style trail challenge, which is open to all ages including juniors.
All events are open to everyone whether you’re a beginner looking for a fun challenge, a seasoned runner or experienced orienteer wanting to race or just try something new. Bikes are available to hire and there will be support and advice from Saxons orienteering club if you’re new to navigation.
Entry fee for the individual duathlon is £25 (BTF members £22) and includes a t-shirt and electronic timing. Entry fee for the orienteering trail event starts at only £5.
