2018 Reviewed: BMW Duathlon National Series & National Championship

National Duathlon 2018 Run Pic

Next in our review of the 2018 season is the three-month duathlon season. Between mid-January and mid-April the duathlon community travelled the length and breadth of the country to run, bike, run. The nine race series began in Naas on 14th January and finished with the Mid-Ulster Duathlon on 22 April.

Athletes must complete two races plus the National Championships, which were held this year in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal and hosted by Letterkenny 24/7 Triathlon Club. If an athlete completes more than the required amount of races then the best two results count.
