Formula 5 Duathlon 2021

The Formula 5 Duathlon will be taking place this year on Sunday 25th April 2021.

This event takes its name from the number of legs in the race … 5! This will see you run, bike, run, bike and then run again over short distances to keep the pace and heart rate high!

The run course will take you around Emberton Country Park while the cycle sections will encompass 20km of rolling hills around the Newport Pagnell area.
