Wendover Woods Duathlon – 12th December 2021

Wendover Woods Duathlon

JOIN US FOR A DUATHLON IN WENDOVER WOODS ON SUNDAY 12TH DECEMBER 2021

Wendover Woods is the highest point in the Chilterns, and what better place to start a superb Duathlon event, with stunning views over the local countryside.

The first run takes place on the firm firecrest trails that wind gently down through the woods before snaking their way back up to the visitor’s centre.
Check out the 5km run course

(Note that we have had to amend the bike course due to HS2 works. The Sprint is still one lap, but the Standard is now three laps)
The bike course heads out of Wendover Woods on to local country roads and drops down into the village of Wendover before heading back up to StLeonards via a challenging climb. The Sprint distance will complete this lap once, the Standard, three times, before re-entering Wendover Woods.
The final section of the bike leg is completed by riding through the Wendover Woods estate on a beautiful scenic road that takes your breath away in more ways than one!
Check out the Standard bike route 
The second run sees you heading back on to the fire tracks in the woods for a single lap, finishing near the visitors centre where you will collect your well-earned medal.
