Entries open for Stinger Adventure Duathlon

Off-road running and riding with plenty of mud

The 'Stinger' itself is the final 3k run through mud and rivers.

The Stinger Adventure Duathlon is returning to Newnham Park, Plymouth on Sunday 15 February.


The race begins with a 5k off-road run around Newnham Deer Park, followed by four 5k laps of a separate mountain bike course. The event finishes with the Stinger itself: a 3k run through bogs, rivers, mud and anything else the organisers can think of.

All finishers will receive a commemorative mug and there are prizes for the top three finishers in each category:

  • Solo Male (18+)
  • Solo Female (18+)
  • Solo Vet Male (40+)
  • Solo Vet Female (40+)
  • Pairs Male (18+)
  • Pairs Female (18+)
  • Pairs Mixed (18+)

The race begins at Newnham Park shooting ground, which offers a cafe, indoor registration, toilets, water and hard standing parking.
