Swindon Duathlon

So sorry The Swindon Duathlon will not take place in 2009 as the venue is no longer available and we have not found a suitable alternative in Swindon. Previous venue will probably be filled with Honda Cars all spring

see http://www.thisiswiltshire.co.uk/news/headlines/3957872.Honda_car_storage_plan_set_to_go_ahead/

Why not try the Cirencester Off Road Duathlon on 8 February 2009.
