Duathlon Race Series Returns for 4th Straight Year

December 9th, 2015

Series features top run-bike-run events in each of USA Triathlon’s 10 Regions

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon has set the schedule for the 11 events that comprise the fourth annual Duathlon Race Series, with one event in each of the National Governing Body’s 10 Regions across the country.

Created in 2013 to meet the needs of the growing multisport discipline of duathlon, athletes will have the opportunity to compete for points in top-flight run-bike-run events. In addition to the events in each Region, the 2016 USA Triathlon Duathlon National Championships will again be part of the series, encouraging athletes to compete against the best run-bike-run athletes in the nation. Duathlon Nationals is scheduled for June 25 in Bend, Oregon, and more information on Duathlon Nationals is available at usatriathlon.org.

All athletes participating in the 2016 Duathlon Race Series will receive a special item at each event, and awards will be given to the age-group winners of the overall series. To earn a series score, athletes must complete at least two events. Each race is a USA Triathlon Sanctioned Event and will count toward the popular end-of-year Duathlon National Rankings for USA Triathlon annual members.
