The first event in the super-tough Merrell MTB Duathlon series takes place later this month. The ICEMan mountain bike duathlon comprises a 10km run, 15km cycling section and then a final 5km run.
It is set to take place in Frimley, near Farnborough, Surrey, on Saturday 21 February. Entry costs £43 and the race starts at 10.30am.
Organisers Human Race said: "Not for the fainthearted, this promises to be super tough, hilly and extremely challenging. We guarantee oodles of pain, mud and, most importantly, fun. So, whether you're a hardened triathlete, adventure racer or mountain bike rider, this is the event for you!"
