British Triathlon is pleased to announce that Rockingham motor racing circuit in Corby, Northamptonshire will play host to the 2014 British Elite Duathlon Championships taking place on Sunday 30 March 2014.

The event will feature races for elite youths, juniors, seniors and an open paraduathlon, as many athletes test the success of their winter training in the traditional season opener.

The seniors and juniors will compete over sprint distance duathlon (5km run, 20km bike, 2.5km run), battling it out for a share of a £5,000 prize fund as well the first British Championship honours up for grabs in the 2014 season.

Paraduathletes will compete over the same distance, with all classifications catered for at a venue that is made for some fast racing. Youth duathletes will compete over half the distance of the seniors (2.5km run, 10km bike, 1.25km run), with the race acting as the season opener of the British Triathlon Youth Super Series. All races will be held over a multi-lap format, making it a great event for spectators to enjoy at what is a truly impressive venue.

Jon Ridgeon, British Triathlon Director for Major and National Events commented: "We are really excited to take the British Elite Duathlon Championship for the very first time to Rockingham. The venue offers the athletes a fantastic course to race on along with first class facilities to ensure everyone will enjoy the day's racing. The backdrop of the huge grandstands will certainly give the event a unique quality and we hope will encourage spectators to support the athletes in the first Elite Championships of the season."

Rockingham Chief ExecutivePeter Hardman, said: "This event clearly demonstrates how versatile Rockingham is as a venue. The track is perfect for both the running and cycling elements of this event, while the panoramic views of the whole circuit provides spectators with the ideal vantage point to offer their encouragement from start to finish.

"We are delighted to be working in partnership with the British Triathlon to host the first duathlon to be held at the circuit, and look forward to building on the success of this event with a regular duathlon series."
