Virtual Duathlon

Like you, we are all active people who spend most of our time outdoors. Obviously we are as distressed as everyone else about the current situation, but we want to try and make a small difference for people. We may not have any events to time or deliver but there is still a whole community of active people who will be wanting to chat, adapt and continue to keep as fit and healthy as possible through this right now.

So, with this in mind, here is our new Tri HB Virtual Duathlon  offering three different distances:
Short Course Duathlon Middle Course Duathlon Long Course Duathlon
2km Run
14km Cycle
2km Run
4km Run
21km Cycle
2km Run
4km Run
21km Cycle
4km Run

So, how does this work?

Well, you register and once completed, follow the instructions detailed in your receipt to upload your own results and pictures and see how you rank! If you decide to do the event again over the qualifying period to beat your own times, feel free to go back in and edit the results you uploaded - you have until the 11.59pm 12th April to do so. 

When does the event start? How long have I got to do it?
Virtual events flexible but do have the specified time to do the event and upload all results. For example if the event starts at 7am on April 11th and finishes at 11.59pm April 12th you have the oppurtunity to do the event and upload results anytime during this period. Registration will also close after the event has started at a specific time because you are doing the event yourself there is no specific time for you to start, if you want a sleep in or you have to work around other commitments it is all possible as long as you do the event during the specified time. 

Please note- All the virtual events will have a start time which means you cannot upload any results before this time.

What equipment do I need?
The results platform is simple and designed for you to enter your own results for whatever discipline you are doing, it's that easy! You can use your smart watches (Garmin, Polar etc) or simply just download a free app such as map Strava onto your phone and you are good to go. There are many different ways to record your activity either the traditional way or via smart trainers, treadmills and other accounts such as zwift. All we require in the results is a photo, maybe a screen shot of the activity from the device uploaded of the activity in the section provided during the results process. If you are doing a multisport event it is preferred to have the photo showing a block section (all completed distances at once).
We all know the current pandemic is a worrying situation and can be overwhelming, so to keep spirits up and our minds and bodies healthy, we encourage you to get out every day for your exercise during the lockdown period!
