The Stinger celebrates it's 10 year anniversary in 2012. The Stinger always set out to be more of an even contest between the rider and the runner, the Mountain Bike course at Newnham means those with the riding skills get reward and the awesome final Stinger run always gives the strong runner a chance to make up lost ground.
The event consists of a great 5 km run through the attractive Newnham Park woodlands, then a fast, exciting 20 km ride through Newnham's awesome off road trails and finally the 3 km boggy, wet, traumatic Stinger run which will be etched on your soul for years to come.
The venue offers a perfect setting for this type of event with hardstanding car parking, hot food, toilets, refreshments, souvenir mug for all finishers and trophies/prizes courtesy of Certini for top 3 in each cat.
If you don't fancy either the running or riding bit then the relay pairs is just right for you.
There are quite a few off road duathlons about but none will offer the value for money and unique experience of the Stinger...
All parking will be at Newnham Park Shooting Ground, venue postcode is PL7 5BN but please follow signs for Lee Moor and then Newnham Park from Plympton.
Registration will open at 0900 where all numbers can be collected and a course map will be on display.

There will be 1 start for all categories at 1100.
On site there will be a hard standing car park, toilets, hot and cold refreshments, first aid, live timing, rubbish commentary, prizes/medals for top 3 in each category and a finishers mug for all finishers.
