Tour de Trachyte

 

Taking in a mix of forest trail, narrow track and a few other bits and pieces thrown in for good measure, AAA Racing will be staging the first in a series of duathlon events on November 10th, 2018. There's a challenge for everyone available, for ages from 8 through to 108!

 

At the Tour de Trachyte, you can choose any event to run/ride solo or as a team (male, female or mixed) as well as relay teams (one runner, one rider - open - conditions will apply). There's nothing super technical for any level of cyclist or runner, but plenty that will challenge the most avid mountain bikers and trail runners alike.



Participants will take their bikes to T1 which is situate on Millwood Road (https://goo.gl/maps/rk4y1K7c7ws), just 2.5 km from the Glasshouse Mountains lookout, before heading to the start and parking along connection road adjacent to the start. The start/finish area is just a few hundred metres around the corner from the Lookout (https://goo.gl/maps/uCRnVDEGu872).

 

Those taking the 23km option, will run/ride Legs 1-3 then ride leg 1 in reverst back to the start/finish area.


On the day:

  One at T1
  One at T2
  One at approximately halfway around Leg 5

Sign-in

 

Start/Finish area:

Sign in is at the start/finish area after racking your bike 3 km along Woodford-Lookout Rd. Located around the corner from the Glass House Mountains lookout, on Connection Rd (https://goo.gl/maps/uCRnVDEGu872)

 

Parking: Parking will be along the verges along the beginning of Connection Rd.  Park behind the first car you see as the distance from base will be directly proportionate to the time you arrive.  Driving past a row of parked cars will simply see you having to turn around.

Allow time for an 500 metre walk to the registration area if you plan on arriving later in the day.

Registrations are limited places available due to the number of bikes we are able to manage.

 

Mandatory kit:

Race directors contact added to phone, Hopefully you won't need it, but if you do, you'll be glad of it.:

AAA racing accept it in good faith that the mandatory list is adhered to by participants, though there will be spot checks on course
