Triathlon England are delighted to announce that we will be working with KP events this year to host a Duathlon event in the Castle Grounds of Tamworth on the 27th November 2016.
Kirsty Shaw (West Midlands Regional Manager of Triathlon England) said “Within the West Midlands region we don’t have many run-bike-run events, in fact this is the first Duathlon event that I have seen to be organised. I am certainly eager to see how many participants we will attract”.
Triathlon England look to work with many organisers from clubs, local authorities, leisure centres and business to host training activities and events for all levels of fitness, focusing on all gender, ability and ages.
To attract all levels and abilities of fitness, we are pleased to say that we will be working with Phil Clamp (KP Events Ambassador) amongst other triathlon coaches to host some novice training days. This is a great chance for Triathlon England and KP Events to support those who want to get involved in a multi-sport activity and help gain that confidence in doing so.

The most unique sprint event in the UK… held in Cathedral close! First run in 1998, the Lichfield Dash in association with St John’s House, is a completely unique sporting occasion. Invited athletes race the 12 noon chimes and the crowds flock to Cathedral Close to watch a race against time come alive in a spectacle of speed, strength and true Corinthian endeavour. The Dash event is on Saturday the 20th August 2016 from 10am to 12.30pm.
The first ever Dash in 1998 was won by GB 400m international Paul Thompson of Birchfield Harriers. TV cameras captured the drama of the dash in 1999 where Tipton Harriers athlete Mark Anslow collapsed on the finishing line to allow GB international and Birchfield Harrier Carl Warren through to win the coveted trophy awarded to the dash winner. But true to form, Mark returned to challenge Carl again in July 2000 for the coveted dash title and to mark the occasion of the millennium, all race athletes were wearing Chariots of Fire style outfits of the 1920’s period.
The dash was held every year in July until 2012 when to welcome the Olympic Torch and its journey through Lichfield, Olympic 400m silver medallist in Atlanta in 1996 Roger Black presented the newly commissioned Dash trophy from Arthur Price Ltd to the winner James Whitehouse from Birchfield Harriers (pictured). The race never disappoints and went on to provide excitement and drama up to 2012 where the race ceased due to a number of factors. But in Olympic Year 2016 and with KP Events ambassador Meghan Beesley representing a real medal hope in the 400m hurdles in Rio, the Dash will be back and even better than before.
