Sunday 2nd April
South Coast Duathlon

On Saturday, Seaford seafront was packed with thousands of runners, many preparing for next month’s London Marathon. Yesterday, they just ran, today their bikes are coming too. Today’s event is organised by Fun 2 Tri, who actively promote multi-sport events around the country. Part of the UK Triathlon Race Series, today’s duathlon is a run-bike-run event, (effectively a water-free triathlon). It’s definitely not to be confused with the biathlon, which consists of cross country skiing and rifle shooting, two events rarely found - we hope - on Seaford seafront.

If you’re fit enough to take part, there may still be time to apply via their website shown below. There are four events on the day including the fun event over 2.5k/10k/2.5k, and a relay, which can be completed by a team of three. If, like the team at Viva, you’re training for next year’s event, we suggest that you get down nice and early to the Martello Tower to cheer the competitors on instead. Try to keep an eye out for the second transition – where after between ten and thirty kilometres on the bike, the competitors have to jump off and instantly try to run in a straight line. Think pub closing time - the legs are willing but the brain can’t quite work it out.

Stop running, start riding.
