Gold Events’ ethos is to break down barriers that stop people taking part in sport.
We have linked up with Go-Tri, a project of British Triathlon to bring you an affordable multi-sport at a great price. The distances are achievable for all, so ideal for beginners. The latest Newcastle version introduces Duathlon (Run/Bike/Run)

Road Bike: 10km (Kids 1km & Junior 2km)

Registration: Collect number and timing chip, show your bike and helmet are in working order. You will also be given a start time.
Rack Bike: Put your bike on the racking provided. Put cycle helmet and any other extras you may need (water, clothes, gloves, sunglasses etc) with the bike for transition 1.
Run 1: Be at the run start area 10 minutes before your wave time. Your wave will be called through where you will be given a race briefing. The route will be signed and marshalled. When finished head to transition 1.
Transition 1 (T1): Prepare for the ride. You must put your helmet on before removing your bike. Walk your bike to the mount line, here you get on and ride.
Bike: Follow the signs on the 10k route. There will be marshals at 3 major junctions. The marshals are here for your safety, so you must follow their instructions. For the rest of the route you will follow directional signs. The bike is on open roads, so you will encounter other traffic. No drafting is allowed on this race (following another bike to avoid wind resistance).
Transition 2 (T2): Upon returning to the Athletic Club, you must dismount the bike before the dismount line. Return your bike to the rack before removing your helmet. When ready, leave transition for the run.
Run 2: Follow the signs around the route again. You will finish on the running track for a sprint finish!
Finish: Relax, you have done it. Exchange your timing chip for a medal. Take the time to support others still on the route. Remove all of your kit from the racking when it is safe to do so. The results will be published on the website shortly after the event.
