About This Activity

The Happy Kids 5-Mile Duathlon on March 7th offers young athletes a chance to run and bike together in one-fun-race! The 1 mile first run begins the race followed by a 3 mile road bike on roads closed to traffic and the final run is 1 mile on soft crushed granite and sand paths. This is a great early-season race for triathletes.

The March 7th Happy Kids 5-Mile Duathlon will be the first of our Three-Race Happy Kids 5-Mile Series (March 7, April 19, May 10) for which we will have Series Champions in each 2-year age group (5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14). To be eligible for the Series Championship athletes must race in all three events. Athletes racing in all three Happy Kids 5-Mile Duathlons will receive a Series Finisher Medal.

Save $20 by signing up for the 3-race Series before December 1st, 2014!
