Organisers have announced that entries for the 2012 London Duathlon will be opening tomorrow, Thursday 24 November 2011.
The race is returning to the historic grounds of Richmond Park on 9 September 2012 and offers competitors the chance to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Royal Park on the only day of the year the roads are closed to traffic.
Since its launch in 2005, the race has regularly attracted over 3,000 competitors making it the largest duathlon in the world, and it is especially exciting that competitors will get the chance to ride part of the Olympic cycle route, which itself passes through the famous park.
Entrants can choose from a number of different race distances starting with Fun (5km run, 10km bike, 5km run) up to Ultra (20km run, 80 km bike, 10 km run), and can enter as an individual or rally together some friends and race as a team.
Due to popular demand, organisers have also announced that the international duathlon race distance of 10km run, 40km bike and 5km run will also be included as an option for the first time in 2012.
Macmillan Cancer Support will be returning for the second year as the official charity of the event and will be offering competitors the chance to race for ‘Team Macmillan’ and raise vital funds for people affected by cancer.
