The event will take place on 30 March and feature races for elite youths, juniors, seniors and an open paraduathlon.

The seniors and juniors will compete over sprint distance duathlon (5km run, 20km bike, 2.5km run), battling it out for a share of a £5,000 prize fund as well the first British Championship honours up for grabs in 2014. 

Paraduathletes will compete over the same distance as the seniors and juniors, while youths will compete over half the distance (2.5km run, 10km bike, 1.25km run). All races will be held over a multi-lap format.

Jon Ridgeon, British Triathlon Director for Major and National Events, said: “We are really excited to take the British Elite Duathlon Championship for the very first time to Rockingham. The venue offers the athletes a fantastic course to race on along with first class facilities to ensure everyone will enjoy the day’s racing.” 

The British Age-Group Duathlon Championships will take place in autumn 2014, with full details to be confirmed in the New Year.
