Duathlon : Duathlon is very popular and highly competitive sports event in western countries. In India recently this is organized in Metro cities. A duathlon is a competition that is composed of running and biking. The usual format for a duathlon is run-bike-run, meaning you start with a run, then transition to the bike, then transition back to running again. Your time starts when you start the running, and finishes when you cross the finish line after finishing cycling and second part of running. Athletics can participate as solo and Team also. There are different events depending upon the distance of running and cycling. In Amravati, we are organizing following events of Duathlon.
Olympic Duathlon : 10 Km Run followed by 40 Km Road Cycling and 5 Km final Run.
Solo Olympic Duathlon: The same participant will be doing the running and cycling also.
Team Olympic Duathlon – Team consists of two participants, one runner and one cyclist. In a team, running will be done by a runner and cycling part will be done by a cyclist. For example, in a team, Ashok is Runner and Bhaskar is cyclist. Ashok will start the event as all Duathlons start with running. Once Ashok finishes his first part of running of 10 Km and returns to finish line, Bhaskar will start the cycling.
