Route maps for the Beginner, Sprint and Standard distance races are now available to download from the event page at http://vo2maxracingevents.co.uk/Events/Morpeth-Duathlon-2014 - see the Downloads section at the bottom right of the page.
The Sprint course remains largely unchanged from 2013's event, with a tweak to the first lap of Run 1 to give the field more time to spread out; both runs still take in the closed roads of the town centre and a winding route through Carlisle Park.
The bike course proved very popular and remains unchanged. Meanwhile the Standard distance builds on that bike course to include a fantastic climb up The Trench, and is sure to prove a firm favourite. The Beginner distance bike route is much shorter, but still packs a punch with some steady climbs, beautiful roads and fast sections to really let you pick up speed.
You'll also find links within the PDF's to Map My Run, where the routes have been mapped to let you study the course in advance of race day.
