The Dambuster Duathlon is a qualification event for the Duathlon World Championships 2016

For those intending to qualify for GB selection for the 2016 Age Group World Duathlon Championships, the Dambuster Duathlon makes a perfect race to start off the season and a guaranteed spot at the worlds.

"A great race on a well established course which has
been used for the Dambuster Triathlon since 2002"

In addition, for those looking to podium at the Dambuster Triathlon in June the Dambuster Duathlon is a perfect preparation since it uses the same bike and run routes as the Dambuster Triathlon and so offers an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the course. Alternatively, for those just looking to get their season under way there is no better race on which to test your form.

Starting with a 10km run around the lake and across the dam it's important not to be deceived by the flatness of the run section which does a double loop of the dam. The fact that you can see the competition for much of the run means this is a psychologically challenging course.

The bike -- a slightly long 42km around the spectacular Rutland scenery -- is a good testing course and well suited to strong bikers. Best described as undulating its sure to sort out the standings. The Rutland Ripple is not the only test of endurance on the course which offers little in the way of flat but does offer good road surfaces and is a well established and clearly signposted route.

After a testing bike the final 5 km run will see who has 'what it takes'. This is a straight out and back affair which leads you back over familiar ground. You can't get lost on this course but you can get very, very tired.
