The Course

Carmarthenshire Duathlon Course 2014

Run 1 – 5Km

The Race will start outside the Discovery Centre at the North Dock. You will run along the Millennium Coastal Path which takes you down towards the Pwll fishing lakes. It is a straight out and back course, we will have cups of water as you finish the 1st run. As you come back towards the Discovery Ctr you will be directed towards Transition, please stay on the pavement and we will have marshals on the car park crossing point. You course map is below or you can view the map online HERE.

Bike 27km

After mounting your bike at the designated line you will take the first left exit at the roundabout (0,5m). The same will apply at the second roundabout and this will take you over the railway line and toward the third roundabout at 1.5m. You will take the second exit here and head down to Kidwelly. You will travel straight through the next two roundabouts as you head through Pembrey towards Kidwelly. The main roundabout on the outskirts of Kidwelly is the turnaround point for the Cycle course and you then re-trace your steps all the way back to the North Dock. The Cycle course will be clearly signposted with Large Yellow fluorescent arrow signs and we will have marshalls on all key junctions. It is however your responsibility to be fully aware of the cycle course before hand. ( A Large scale map will be present at Registration) The highest point is only 50m above sea level so this is a pretty flat fast bike course.

Run 2 – 5Km

After returning from the 27km bike leg you will exit transition as instructed by marshals and join back up with the Millennium Coastal Path. This will be the same course as the 1st run. However when you come back towards the Discovery Centre you make your way towards the Finish Line. This is a fast run course.
