BCS Events are excited to bring you the Cowman Duathlon on 2 dates in 2023:

Back for the fourth year, the Cowman Duathlon will offer 2 distances across our tried and tested routes in the beautiful location of Emberton Country Park; Calfman (Standard Distance) and Stampede.

Our October Duathlon will be the 2024 Standard Distance Duathlon World Championship Townsville Australia Qualifier and will be an identical format to our April event. So if you fancy giving the course a go before the qualifying event, entry for our April Duathlon is now open.

Whether you’re a novice or an expert in the field, BCS Events will take care of you from start to finish and make sure we deliver a superb event for all to enjoy.

This event will be taking place with a mass start unless otherwise stated due to the COVID-19 measures at the time. All athletes will receive a bespoke eco-friendly wooden medal with the option of purchasing a T-shirt and/or a Hoodie too!
