Kickstart Your Triathlon Season With Victoria's Duathlon!
Nothing marks the start of the triathlon season better than the Subaru Triathlon Series Victoria's Duathlon. Now in its 20th year and formerly known as "Victoria's Brick Duathlon" this race has become a classic for all those triathletes and duathletes looking to put their training to the test!
A little about the course:
Victoria's Duathlon consists of a 4km run, followed by a 30km bike and finally a 4km run. Both the bike and run courses take place over rolling terrain. The run courses are a simple out and back, with the trip out being mostly uphill and the return trip, therefore, being mostly downhill. The second run is a repeat of the first run. The bike is also a simple out and back course with rolling hills. Nothing too difficult but a good challenge none the less. Most elite athletes will complete the race in approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes while the average finisher will cross the line in 1 hour and 40 minutes.
Here is a great race recap from Craig Cassar, a Get Out There Magazine reporter:
