Canterbury Duathlon Series

Brookside Park Rolleston

Race Information

2019 will see the change form Ashburton Duathlon Series to Canterbury Duathlon Series and being held at Brookside Park in Rolleston.  This great Series will still have the Short and Long Course events and will cater for everyone form beginner to the Elite Athlete. 

With thousands of people having taken part in this event over the last 13-years, we are excited with the changes and what the new course and location will bring. 

Race 1:  Sunday 9th June 2019

Race 2:  Sunday 30th June 2019

Race 3:  Sunday 28th July 2019

This event caters for everyone; Young, Old, Male, Female, Big, Small, Fast or Slow. We have family sections.

The distances are all achievable with the run/walk in the enclosed area of Bookside Park, while the bike ride is around a block.  No hills and very little traffic makes this such an appealing event. We reiterate that the long course is not to be walked because of time restraints of all competitors, any competitor wanting to walk the event, they should enter the short course.

The distances are Run/walk on a mix of surfaces, grass and seal.  The first run/walk is a 2 or 4 laps of the 1.25km circuit, the bike ride is 14km loop course, with 1 lap for the short course and 2 for the long course. The last run/walk is an easy 1 or 2 lap of the 1.25km depending if you are doing the short or long course. 

This is a great spectator course for husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or any other friend to come along and watch.

Prize giving this year will be at the start/finish line and will be approximately 15 minutes after the last competitor has finished. We have some fantastic spot prizes again this year.

2019 is our 14th year of this great event.
