Welcome to Duathlon Rockingham & Rockingham 10

We would like to welcome everyone to the 1st Duathlon Rockingham & the 2nd Rockingham 10 run organised by SBR Events Limited. Firstly we would like to thank all of the volunteers that will be giving up their time, to ensure that everyone has a fun & safe day.


Confirmation of Entry

The participant list is on the right side) to confirm that they have been successful in their application. SBR Events Limited cannot be held responsible for loss of entries in the post and strongly advises competitors to enter online if possible as this is a more secure entry system. Race entries may be included on the list even if you have withdrawn recently. Email any queries to asap.


Age Restrictions

Duathlon: BTF rules state that you must be 15 years old on December 31st of the year that you are racing in. So if you are 14 or older and your birthday is on December 31st you are OK to race.

R10: We are not placing a restriction on the age running the 10k or the 10 mile stages, we just need an email from a parent or guardian stating the young person is fit enough to compete.


What Will You Need?

The race is being run at the end of the second week of November which, despite our current warm spell, will end soon and we advise that you bring a range of sporting garments in case the weather changes unexpectedly on the day. Rockingham Circuit has the tendency to have a wind blowing from one corner, so we recommend that you bring warm garments to don once you have completed the race.


Directions to Rockingham Circuit

Rockingham Circuit is approximately 36 miles to the west of Peterborough, 27 miles to the east of Leicester and 25 miles north of Northampton. The circuit is identified with brown road signs enroute to the circuit.

Car Parking -  is free of charge.

All parking for the event is split - 10 mile participants will follow signs & park on the left after entering the venue. They will then walk into the stadium following the yellow signs. Duathlon & 10k participants will follow signs to the  Inner Paddock, an area inside the track accessible via a tunnel which goes under the stadia. Once you arrive at the inner paddock the Duathlon participants need to park on the right hand side of the paddock, away from the garages.

Electronic Timing – by JC Race Solutions

Providing fast and accurate results is the most critical part of any race. JC Race Solutions use the latest timing system chips. Each athlete is given a “chip” that generates a unique signal when it crosses through an antenna field. By using a database to assign each participant’s personal information to each chip, timing software can easily calculate each participant’s time and finish place.

To maximise the success of getting your time there are a few things required:

a) Wear the chip!

b) When attached to the strap wear it just above your LEFT ankle with the chip arrow pointing upwards. Our antenna fields will be positioned about this height, if you wear it anywhere else it may not be read.

Electronically capturing each finishers time allows us to continuously post preliminary provisional results on-site during the race in a number of ways.

On most occasions we will have provisional results the same day on our website -

At the moment these Triathlon chips are re-usable and as such need to be handed back at the finish of the race or before, if you have to retire early.  You will incur a charge of £10 if you fail to hand it in.


Race Numbers

Duathlon  - 2 sets                   R10 - 1 set

Race Numbers must be worn on the front during the run and on the reverse during the bike. Numbers must be pinned at all four corners. Number belts/ bands are allowed but it is recommended that two be worn. One number band for the top of the number & one number band for the bottom to stop your number creasing up and becoming unreadable.

NB. You don’t need to bring safety pins, we will have some at registration.
