The duathlon starts at 9am; the transition area is located in the Home Depot parking lot. The first 5k run is an out-and-back that heads west on Marine Drive, the 15 mile bike ride starts by heading east on Marine Drive for about four miles to the turnaround, then heads west, past the start/finish, to the turnaround at the 11 mile mark, and then ends again in the Home Depot parking lot. The second 5k run is another out-and-back that heads east on Marine Drive (or the sidewalk for participants starting their second run after 10:20am).
After finishing the race, there will be food and drink and music. Awards will be given to the top three finishers, male and female, in each race, and also three deep in age groups. Be sure to stick around and cheer on the other athletes! If you’ve never tried a triathlon or duathlon before, this is a great event to run your own race and then observe the multi-sport event.
