What is a virtual duathlon?
Athletes have the convenience of biking and running the distance of a sprint duathlon on their own schedule anywhere in the world — indoors or outside. Do the distance all at once like a traditional duathlon or break it into one leg per day. The beauty of a virtual duathlon is the flexibility.
Who is virtual duathlon for?
Anyone! Whether you’re looking to do your first duathlon or have done hundreds, anyone can participate. To be considered a finisher, you simply need to complete the required distance for running, cycling and running before the end of the event.
Where should I participate?
Wherever you can safely bike and run! Ride on the trainer (strictly indoor only for safety). Run on a treadmill, track or trail. As long as you can measure your time and distance via a smartwatch, GPS-enabled device or phone, you can enter your time and distance on the Virtual Sports Racing platform.
Cycling portion strictly indoor only for safety. Running portion indoors or outdoors based on safety and full compliance with local Coronavirus guidelines.
What equipment do I need?
A GPS-enabled device, phone or smartwatch to record your workout is encouraged, but you do not have to have a tracking device. Basic bike and run gear or access to a stationary bike or treadmill is all you really need to participate.
