The partnership means RG Active will be on hand to provide hints, tips and advice to the participants of this gruelling and iconic event before during and after race day on Saturday 12th November.
John Brame from RG Active said; “we’re all really proud to add our name to such a well respected event and are looking forward to working with Human Race and everyone taking part right through 2011 and beyond.”
The RG Active Winter BallBuster takes place in the picturesque setting of the Box Hill National Trust site where the course winds up and down the undulating hills of the North Downs multiple times. The first leg of the duathlon takes you on an eight mile run. Starting at the summit of Box Hill the route passes breathtaking views of the British countryside leading out towards Headley. After a relatively serene start the hills kick in, culminating in the notorious ‘zig-zag’ road, complete with steep gradients, sharp bends and uneven surfaces.
For the second stage of the duathlon competitors will mount their bikes and loop round the course three more times, completing 24 miles on the open road. After racking bikes in transition its on to the second and final leg sapping eight mile run lap.
The BallBuster is known as one of the toughest duathlons on the calendar and is not for the faint hearted. According to John Brame, this is one of the things that made it so appealing to RG Active. “The Winter Ballbuster is an event with exactly the kind of reputation that motivates us at RG Active. Training for an event as gruelling as the Winter Ballbuster is definitely going to add to motivation levels and that’s what we’re all about!”
According to John Lunt, Managing Director of Human Race, RG Active’s involvement will add far more than just their name to the Winter BallBuster; “It’s a really hard event and they don’t come much tougher than the Winter BallBuster. RG Active’s support in preparing the athletes before the day will be invaluable. We’re delighted to have them on board.”
