Scott Clinic Duathlon Series Race #1 – Virtual Race


Duathlon Series Race #1 

Shoe Clinic Duathlon 

 3-4th June 

The Scott Clinic Duathlon Winter Series is all about being involved, having fun and keeping your fitness in check ready for the upcoming summer triathlon series. Our distances are designed to cater for all abilities whether you are a seasoned athlete or want to give it a go and just beginning in multisport these events are perfect for you.

Due to the recent developments with the pandemic we have moved this race to a virtual event to ensure the safety of all participants involved

So, how does this work?

Well, you register and once completed, follow the instructions detailed in your receipt to upload your own results and pictures and see how you rank! If you decide to do the event again over the qualifying period to beat your own times, feel free to go back in and edit the results you uploaded – you have until the 11.59pm June 7 to upload all results.

Who can do the event?
Virtual events have no boundaries and anyone anywhere can do the events, even if you are in a different country. This makes for a great opportunity to challenge yourself against friends or other participants you normally wouldn’t compete against due to the logistics to do so.

For safety reasons all registered athletes do need to be 12 years or older

All registered participants that do 4 or more events in the series with uploaded results and pictures go in the draw for some awesome sponsored price packs at the end of the series!!

When does the event start? How long have I got to do it?

Virtual events are flexible but do have specified times to complete the event and upload all results. For example if the event starts at 7am on June 6 and finishes at 11.59pm June 7 you have the opportunity to do the event and upload results and pictures anytime during this period. Registration will also close after the event has started at a specific time. Because you are doing the event yourself there is no specific time for you to start, if you want a sleep in or you have to work around other commitments it is all possible as long as you do the event during the specified time.

Please note- All the virtual events will have a start time and an end time which means you cannot upload any results before or after these times.

What equipment do I need?

The results platform is simple and designed for you to enter your own results for whatever discipline you are doing, it’s that easy! You can use your smart watches (Garmin, Polar etc) or simply just download a free app such as map Strava onto your phone and you are good to go. There are many different ways to record your activity either the traditional way, or via smart trainers, treadmills and through accounts such as Zwift and Strava. All we require in the results is a photo, maybe a screen shot of the activity from the device uploaded of the activity in the section provided during the results process. If you are doing a multisport event the photo(s) must show a block section or showing disciplines done in sequence (all completed distances at once). **

**Please note if you are doing a multisport event only upload the time for each discipline you are doing, DO NOT INCLUDE TRANSITION TIMES.**
