With qualifying spots at the ITU Sprint Distance Duathlon World Championships in Pontevedra, Spain up for grabs, the sprint distance event (4.3km/21.6km/4.3km) is sure to attract a competitive field.

The standard distance race will involve an 8.6km run (two laps of the circuit), followed by a 38.8km cycle (nine laps), before finishing with one more run lap of 4.3km. The organisers add that lap counting technology is in place to ensure the correct number of laps are completed.
