The Ian Hesketh Memorial Duathlon is a non profitable event. We pride ourselves on donating to a different charity each year and invite them to come along. We also have generous prize giving and T-shirts are given away to all competitors and marshals and we make a donation to Rivington Primary School for kindly allowing this event to take place on their grounds. Finally, a donation is made to Horwich RMI Harriers.
