Ian Hesketh Memorial Duathlon, Horwich RMI Harriers, Northwest, UK

The Duathlon has been staged for over 12 years in various formats.

The event is run annually in memory of Ian Hesketh who tragically died at the tender age of 27 in 2005. Ian was a member of Horwich RMI Harriers since he was 8 years old and Rivington was his favourite training area. He was a Lifeguard at a Leisure Centre in Bolton and Cycled to and from work every day.

The event centres entirely in the Rivington area, with Rivington Primary School as the Start and Transition Area. This makes for a more secure location than previous years for leaving bikes and belongings. The course suits both beginner and experienced athletes and the scenery is some of the best outside the Lake District.

The two 5k runs are almost entirely off road on tracks and paths and the cycle section is three laps with two small hills on each lap.
