Run Bike Run FAQ

In addition to the main event FAQ’s found on the Marathon page, please see below FAQs specific to the Run Bike Run event.

Q. Where do I put my bike and cycling kit when I arrive?

A. All Run Bike Run competitors will be directed to park at Kielder Village. When you arrive follow signs to Bike Drop and Registration located at Transition 1. Register with the event team and leave your bike and any kit you need during the event here, marshals will guide you to the correct bike rack according to your race number. You will then board a shuttle bus to the start. Any kit you do not need during the event take with you to the start where it can be left in the secure baggage drop located in the event marquee. Shuttle buses will transport you back to Transition 1 from the finish once you have completed the event. 

Q. How will my kit get from T1 to T2?

A. Once you have left transition 1 your kit will be loaded onto a shuttle bus and transported to transition 2 so your running shoes will be there ready for you on completion of your bike section. Your bike will be transported back to T1 for collection.

Q. Do I have to run/ride the whole course?

A. As long as you complete the course in the designated maximum time of 4 hours you can dismount and walk with you bike if required.

Q. How will I know where my kit is at the transition points?

A. Your bike will be numbered, and your kit will be in a numbered box which corresponds to your race number. The transition area will be clearly labeled according to race number.

Q. I have never taken part in a Duathlon before, can I still enter?

A. Absolutely! You can enter if you haven’t done a duathlon before, we welcome first timers. We just ask that you try a few runs and rides or a similar distance to those you are looking to complete before the event to make sure you will be physically able to complete the course.
