Our famous spring season opener is back on 29th April 2018. Competitors in our events tell us our races are really well organised, and great value, but if you click the link below to enter before 31st December 2017 you will save a further £5.00 on the 2018 race price. We look forward to seeing you at Great Notley Country Park.
The Great Notley Spring Duathlon is based at Great Notley Country Park in Braintree, with the attraction of a beautiful parkland venue but very accessible with good road links from the A120 and A131.
The race starts and finishes with a 4km run within the confines of the country park. You will run on a mixture of grass and surfaced paths, with a challenging hill included in the run. The transition to the cycle section is on a grass area adjacent to the access road. The cycle course is all ‘on road’, consisting of two 10km laps offering a fast but enjoyable ride through Rayne, Willows Green and Great Leighs before returning to the centre for the final run. The manageable distances and traffic free run course makes it an ideal race for novices.
