MORE than 700 competitors will take on the Champion Lakes course for the City of Armadale Duathlon as part of their bid for Australian Champion Status and selection into the 2017 Australian World Duathlon Team.

The race, which is held at Champion Lakes Regatta Centre, is a run-bike-run format and includes three distances including a 5km run, 20km ride and 2.5km run.

Event manager Lachlan Matthews said he was excited the event was once again part of the National Series.

“It’s always a fantastic atmosphere at Champion Lakes when you know that the best athletes in the world are competing,” he said.

“The world qualifying points that are up for grabs makes the race even more exciting – everyone tries to find that extra ten per-cent left in the tank.”

Online entries close Friday, September 30 at noon.
