Description

The annual Victorian Duathlon Series consists of four races, each run by a different host club in collaboration with Triathlon Victoria. A Duathlon is an important winter event within the Victorian multisport calendar as it provides athletes with the opportunity to compete during the winter months. Duathlon events involve running, cycling and running around a closed road circuit.  

Triathlon Victoria believes strongly in inclusion and that multisport provides something for everyone, no matter their age, gender, cultural background or ability. Behind every participant lies a story and for them duathlon is about celebrating both the start and finish lines. With the philosophy of inclusion and acknowledgement that every individual is different we work to increase participation in the sport through affiliated clubs, coaches and race directors. The main focus of the Duathlon Series is to provide local residents, primary and high schools and sporting clubs the opportunity to participate in a local community organised event and to promote health and fitness. The event is a community event, with all the proceeds from the event going back into the club and the sport of triathlon.

For persons with an intellectual disability, we offer multiclass racing. Please enquire with the Triathlon Victoria office for further details, on 95988686.
