BananaMan Triathlon and Duathlon 2015 race report

There was fun for all ages last Saturday (11 July) as 800 participants took to Dorney Lake, Buckinghamshire, to take part in triathlon and duathlon events.


The 2015 BananaMan Triathlon offered up six different triathlon events, meaning something for everyone. If that wasn’t enough, for the first time in the event’s history there was a duathlon for competitors who didn’t fancy a swim.

Those participating could choose from a selection of disciplines ranging from team time trials to relay, sprint to the complete triathlon distance. The triathlon distance known as the Whole Banana (800m/31.8km/7.5km) proved to be the most popular and the men’s category had to be split into over-40’s and under-40’s.
