On Sunday 2nd October over 700 competitors will participate in the City of Armadale Duathlon as part of their bid for Australian Champion Status and selection into the 2017 Australian World Duathlon Team.
The race, which is held at Champion Lakes Regatta Centre is a run-bike-run format and includes three distances - the long course, short course and Tadpoles race for kids.
It is a part of the Triathlon Australia National Calendar and is a national and state championship event for age group and elite triathletes.
Event Manager, Lachlan Matthews is excited that the event is once again part of the National Series.
“It’s always a fantastic atmosphere at Champion Lakes when you know that the best athletes in the world are competing,” said Lachlan.
“The world qualifying points that are up for grabs makes the race even more exciting – everyone tries to find that extra ten per-cent left in the tank. Best of all, the venue is exceptional for spectators so it’s an event that the community can come down and support.”
The field is likely to include exciting interstate athletes as well as WA’s top competitors.
Online entries close Friday, 30th September at midday.
