ATW Remembrance Duathlon – 12th November 2022

ATW Remembrance Duathlon Essex

ATW Remembrance Duathlon


Tackle a run-bike-run event at the disused Debden Airfield alongside the Carver Barracks this Remembrance Day. The Carver Barracks is a British Army base that supports the Felix Fund, the Bomb Disposal Charity.  Help us to honour our fallen heroes and raise money for this fantastic military charity by running in the Essex Remembrance Runs!

Remembrance Day (informally known as Poppy Day owes to the tradition of wearing the remembrance poppy), has been observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

With distances ranging from a 5k-16k-5k Sprint for beginners, up to our 10k-64k-10k Middle distance for experienced duathletes, there really is something for everyone.

The run course is guaranteed traffic-free, using a 5km circuit around the flat airfield that maps out the shape of an airplane, (quite appropriate for the location and special day). The bike course winds its way around the beautiful country lanes, and with only 3 left-hand turns to negotiate each lap, its bound to leave you grinning from ear to ear.
