The shorter sprint distance duathlons employ the same skills over shorter distances: 5km run, 20km bike and a final 5km run. In order to take advantage of more settled weather the Althorp Duathlon has now moved to the end of the season as a final opportunity for the experienced duathletes to put into practise their season's training over the full standard distance, and to provide the opportunity for the less experienced and novice competitors to have a go at a standard or sprint distance event within the safety of an organised event.

The sprint distance duathlon covers the same route as the standard distance event and does not miss any of its unique features. Single sport competitors, the runners or the bikers, the novice duathletes, or the experienced duathletes wanting to concentrate on shorter distances are encourage to enter this event. Runners or cyclists who would like to compete in a duathlon but dont fancy doing both disciplines could enter with a friend as a relay team. Relay teams are welcome to enter either the standard or sprint distance duathlons. Competitors who enjoy running and cycling through beautiful settings will enjoy the tree lined traffic free avenues of the Althorp Estate with the quiet roads between the Northamptonshire villages of Little Brington and Great Brington.
