Introducing GO TRI Local… a monthly duathlon bike and run event coming to Doncaster

A new monthly event is launching in Doncaster allowing people in South Yorkshire to take part in a combined bike and run event at the same place, same time and on the same day every month.

Tuesday, 19th April 2022, 10:23 am

The first GO TRI Local Doncaster will be held at Doncaster Cycle Track on Sunday, April 24, and is the perfect opportunity for people wanting to combine bike and run for the first time in a fun and non-competitive environment.

For anyone looking to try something new or wanting to take part in an event the whole family can get involved in, this new family-friendly event will be held each month around the cycle track next to Doncaster Dome.

Participants can do as much or as little as they like with two distances to choose from.
