Venue change for Cirencester Off Road Du

New location for Gloucestershire race after the death of Earl Bathurst

Due to the sad death of Earl Bathurst, TriFerris have been informed that Cirencester Park Estate has entered a period of probate and no events will be allowed in the park until further notice, so there is another venue for the 12 February Cirencester Off Road Duathlon event; Charlton Park.

Charlton Park is located on the edge of the Cotswolds, near Malmesbury in Wiltshire, with the entrance situated on the A429 Cirencester/Malmesbury Road, SN16 9DG within easy reach of and between Jct 17, M4 and Cirencester. This PRIVATE Estate is the home of The Earl and Countess of Suffolk and Berkshire and extends to 4500 acres which is made up of grassland, woods and gardens.

The off road course will be very similar to the Cirencester course with a mix of wooded trails, grass and tracks, with a flattish run and undulating bike course over the same distances and same number of laps as previous events and with beautiful views, free parking, chip timing, secure transition, toilets and food vendor.

Please note this park is not open to the public at any other time.

Full details will be posted out two weeks prior to the event and further details will be available soon at www.triferris.com.
