RESTON DUATHLON EVENT INFO
REGISTRATION OPENS 4/4/2020 at 8:00 am
Instead of a triathlon we will be holding a virtual duathlon where racers will complete a run-bike-run. Parents will determine where their children will complete the race and set-up the course according to the distances we set forth. Racers will choose their own day and time to complete the race, but it must be completed sometime between May 10th and 17th and then report your times to the Facebook events page. We will provide a race shirt, medal, and 10th anniversary commemorative headband to registered racers that will be distributed at a later party date.
The duathlon course segments are detailed below. Parents will determine where the racers will complete the course. For each of the 3 segments, Run-Bike-Run, the racer can decide if they want to complete the distance or the time duration.
There are two new categories for the virtual duathlon:
1) 16 to 18 years-old
2) Family Team Relay - for any age and either a 2-person or 3-person team. The team members decide who will complete which segment(s). This is for new registrations only. Please provide a team captain name and the name of the additional team members. All team members MUST reside in the same household.
Family Team Relay example; a family of 2 children and one parent. One child is 7 and the other is 11. They decide the 7-year old will do the first run, the 11-year old will bike, and the parent will complete the last run. Their distances would be 0.25 mile run, 3 mile bike, and 2.4 mile run.
READY, SET, GO!
This is the week for you to complete the run-bike-run!
You will determine where you will complete the race and setup the course according to the distances of your age groups. Refer to chart below.
You will choose which day and time to complete the race, but it must be completed sometime between May 10th - 17th.
We've attached a racer's bib for you to decorate and use while you race.
Once you have completed the race, please share to our Facebook event page or by email a picture of you with your bib and the time you completed the race in. When you share your picture, you will be entered into a raffle for some of our amazing prizes, like gift cards to restaurants like Ted's Bulletin and North Italia, and also a gift card to Athleta.
