XTERRA DUATHLON VIBORG

Short Duathlon:
2,5 km trail run – 10 km MTB – 2,5 km trail run

Long Duathlon:
5 km trail run – 20 km MTB – 5 km trail run

Viborg is a great opportunity to get started on the MTB and in the trail shoes, at the end of winter. Therefore, we offer an awesome challenge in a scenic terrain that will emphasize the more unique elements of the off-road sport. There is focus on a fun experience in nature in a different terrain, with a good deal of sweat, mud and trail.

The majority of the MTB course is trail tracks and there is a unique experience in the hilly landscape, but there is room for everyone – even though there is a risk of tired legs. Large sections of the course are laid in the heath track, which is fun and versatile to bike in, but also though for the legs. The run course is based on the hilly terrain in the forest and offers a hard start and end to the competition.

XTERRA DUATHLON GRIBSKOV

Short Duathlon:
2,5 km trail run – 10 km MTB – 2,5 km trail un

Long Duathlon:
5 km trail run – 20 km MTB – 5 km trail run

Gribskov is characterized by the vastly large forest area, filled with great tracks and steep hills, which is an ideal place to take up the battle with nature. The MTB course and run course take the participants on an tour in the forest, with great challenges along the way. Here in March we can be lucky that spring starts to grow in nature and gives a little warmer weather and dries up the trails.

The MTB course will be with a good flow and a good deal of paths, but also with segments with good opportunities for stepping into the heavy gear and overtaking on the wide tracks. The racecourse is fun, hard and barely so technical and we would definitely recommend having a trail shoe.

Long Duathlon:
10 km trail run – 50 km MTB – 5 km trail run

Blåbjerg stands out with a good amount of altitude meters, a lot of single tracks and fun technical passages. The terrain is almost made for off-road duathlon and offers an MTB course and a run course that is perfect for testing the last of the your fitness before the spring catches. Here is the winter fitness to be tested and the technique to be refined when the plantation and the unique terrain are to be explored.

A large part of the MTB course is single track and it offers more technical passages, which are no more difficult than anyone can join. The height of the course means that it is your fitness that is crucial and at the same time the technique is equally important. The run course is on singletrack almost all the way, and up on the top of Denmark’s highest dune at 64 meters altitude.

An event where you have to give it all you can if you do not want to end at the back and some courses that gives some different challenges than usual.
