SWORD

The S.W.A.G.A Presents: SWORD (South Warnborough Off Road Duathlon) 26th June 2016

 

The S.W.A.G.A Committee are pleased to announce we will be running the second South Warnborough Off Road Duathlon, kindly sponsored by our local financial planning firm – Buckle, Green & Partners.

As the name suggests, SWORD follows a predominantly off road course designed to attract serious athletes, novices and teams alike to compete in this challenging and fun event. You will encounter beautiful views in addition to mud, ruts, gravel, thorns and stingers, so you will need a mountain bike or equivalent.

The course is a 6km off road run, 18km off road cycle, followed by a shorter 2km road run. The terrain is farm tracks, byways, bridle ways and a very short part on quiet country roads.

Individual and team entries available. A team can be 2 people where one person does the running and another does the cycling. Minimum age 16.

The cost is £25 plus £5 for insurance through day membership of Triathlon England if you are not already a member. The second team member will cost £15. Each member of a team will have to be a Triathlon England member so maximum cost for a team will be £50.
To sign up click here go to to the SWORD event page on www.britishtriathlon.org.

Registration will be from 8am to 10am on the morning of 26th June at the Ridley Hall (RG29 1RQSWORD_BT_Entry_small) in the centre of South Warnborough. Bikes will be racked at the SWAGA ground, a short walk from the registration area.
