Here's a mountain duathlon worth doing

If you are training up for an event like a marathon or just wanting to get really fit, a good strategy is to do a variety of challenging events that:
  • Makes training varied and interesting,
  • Gives you a really good incentive to get out and do the training,
  • Makes life an exciting challenge,
  • Gets you into the great outdoors and:
  • If you get injured or fall ill the day before the big event of the season, all is not lost - you had a damn good time getting there!
Wairarapa Multisports Club in conjunction with the Masterton Tramping Club presents the 20th Annual Wairarapa Mountain Duathlon Sunday 4th March, 2007 10.00am Start from Clareville Showgrounds.

The race consists of a bike to the base of the mountain and then a steady 10km out and back run and then cycle to the finish. There is a short course option. Although I am pretty good on a bike, I am teaming up with a mate who is doing the cycling and I will concentrate on the run. Great fun, great training and great country-side!
