In July we are combining with the Orange Triathlon club to put on a 'Dirty Duathlon'. This will combine off road running with off road riding.

Updated details are below. I have a feeling that us mountain bikers will be catching people during the bike leg so take it easy and be nice as you pass. Especially as they will be catching us again on the run Eye-wink

Have a think about what shoes and pedals to use and as you will switch. These tri-athletes are used to swapping shoes quick so we have to try and not be humiliated too much Eye-wink

Duathlon Details
We will hold the following races starting at 10:00am:

. Juniors 400m run 1km bike 400m run
. Mid 1.5km run, 6km bike, 1.5km run
. Long 3km run, 12km bike, 3km run

Darryl Grant Cycles are supporting the event so there will be some
goodies up for grabs. Maybe prizes or maybe random draws. Thanks
Darryl and Rocket. Please remember to support those local businesses
that support us.

Register between 9:00 and 9:45
We have to pay State Forests for use of their facilities and day
licences for those non members who have not joined either club yet so
costs will be:

$5 for members of Orange Tri Club and or CWORBC
$15 for non members. Please remember to join the club (see details
below on how to join)

Check out the gallery for maps of the probable courses pending how the course holds
up in the rain.

Yesterday afternoon was looking good with the sun coming out, but this morning is looking pretty ugly so we have cancelled the Dirty Duathlon for today.

The tracks would take a battering but we also want better conditions to make sure we get a good crowd for our organising efforts Eye-wink

We are keen to run it in the future. Stay tuned for a new date.
