The Duathlon was started in 2003 as a fundraiser for the team.
This year, the Beaver Fever Du will be expanded to include a triathlon! Also, the event will be chip timed.
Longer than the traditional sprint, the bike course features a beautiful 18.1 mile ride with a challenging 2 mile hill climb.
The run is also unique. It is a fun two loop cross-country course.
The Road Run The 5k run (Google Map) leaves the Philomath Middle School and travels over country roads and residential streets on the edge of Philomath. Participants then transition to either the road or mountain bike course.
The 18.1 Mile Road Bike The 18.1 mile road course (Google Map) makes a loop south of Philomath on smooth country roads. It features a moderate hill in the first five miles. The two mile Decker hill, which peaks at 720 ft at mile 9.3, is followed by an exciting descent. The usual mountain bike course will not be open this year do to logging in Starker forest. A mountain bike division is available.
The XC course Your final leg will be on the high school XC course. It is a fast and flat course with a 300 meter track finish.
