YEG Summer Offroad Duathlon
August 10 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm
This unique offroad duathlon will take you past iconic locations in Edmonton’s River Valley including the Talus Balls, Keillor Point (“The End of the World”), Fort Edmonton Park, and the Terwillegar Footbridge.
Starting at Whitemud Park, the first leg of the #YEGSummer offroad duathlon will be a 7km run through the Edmonton River Valley, the second leg will be a 17 km bike ride up and down some beautiful trails, and the third and final leg will be another 7km offroad run to the finish line.
6 lucky finishers—drawn at random—will win new pairs of trail running shoes courtesy of New Balance, and the top individual male and female duathlon finishers will each win a $250 Shopping Spree to United Sport & Cycle.
The event will wrap up with snacks at the finish line, prizes for all finishers, photo opportunities, smoothie samples courtesy of Glow Juicery, & much much more!
The training and the preparation
Special clinics and challenges will be announced throughout the summer with United Sport & Cycle’s United We Run and United Ride Club to help you prepare for this offroad duathlon.
There will be mini dry runs in Edmonton’s River Valley, and you will be able to track your progress and see if you got faster throughout the summer.
Registrants will also receive special deals at United Sport & Cycle to help them prepare for the race, and a complimentary bike check will be offered by United Sport & Cycle’s mechanics in the week before the event.
