The Victorian Duathlon Series is gearing up for another stellar year, as Triathlon Victoria today announces the 2022 Series.
Supported by Bayside Triathlon Club, Melbourne Triathlon Club, Knox Triathlon Club and Nunawading Triathlon Club, the 2022 Victorian Duathlon Series will hit the road across July, August and September for three huge races across two locations.
Races 1 and 2 see the Series return to the spiritual home of duathlon at Yarra Boulevard. Hitting our favourite fast and flat Melbourne course, we’ll be kicking the series off in flying fashion on July 10, before returning for Race 2 and the 2023 World Triathlon Multisport Championships – Ibiza Qualifying Race on August 7.
Race 3, and the Victorian Duathlon Championships, takes us to a brand new location at Caribbean Gardens.
Triathlon Victoria Events Manager, Brian Hinton, spoke of his excitement of the new race site.
“We hope you enjoy our enthusiasm for this fast course and location.
“A review of our Duathlon Series indicated athletes would appreciate more variety in race locations. Several optional sites were assessed but this new site at Caribbean Gardens was developed with the assistance of Blackburn Cycling Club.
“The run and transition will be staged in the Caribbean Gardens precinct on a looped run course, and the cycle will utilise the very fast criterium course.”
Series registrations for the 2022 Victorian Duathlon Series are now open, with Triathlon Australia members saving on entry.
Aligning with Triathlon Victoria’s values of inclusion, the 2022 Victorian Duathlon Series will once again feature multiclass racing. To register for multiclass racing, please select the ‘multiclass’ category for the distance you wish to race in.
The Victorian Duathlon Series is a community based racing series, consisting of three races each hosted by a different local Victorian triathlon club in collaboration with Triathlon Victoria. The Victorian Duathlon Series has a strong club/squad focus, and seeks to highlight not just great Victorian athletes, but also the fantastic work community clubs do, and showcase some of the best duathlon courses in Australia. All proceeds from each Victorian Duathlon Series race go directly back into the club and the sport of triathlon.
