Duathlon, by definition, is an athletic event consisting of a run, followed by a cycling leg, and concluding with a run. It is similar to a triathlon except that the swim is replaced by a run. Kids run or walk 1K (0.6 miles), bike for 2 miles, then run or walk the last 1K (0.6 miles) to the finish! All finishers receive a custom kids race shirt and finisher's medal while supplies last. The course is completely closed to traffic. You must be there before 7:30AM to be parked and have your child's bike set up in transition. Helmets are required.
Training wheels are allowed. This event is all about your child! (Smaller children may make one loop of the bike course to equal 1 miles as long as the parent informs the timing company.) Extra activities take place after the race so your child can continue to enjoy playing outside. Our mission is to make it so fun, they don't even know they are exercising. The event starts at 7:30AM and ends by 10:30AM
