The Banana Split Duathlon & 5K is Middle Tennessee's Best Duathlon. This run/ride/run has something for everyone. You start the race off with a flat 5K around the Centerville Municipal Airport.
Once you are on your bike you will go through some of the most beautiful back country you will come across. You will encounter THE BEAST around miles 6-7. This is a challenging climb of 2.6% grade. Once on top you will run the ridge which can be very fast. You will then find THE FALL around miles 14-15. Speeds of 50 mph have been reached on this section! You will then meet THE SON OF BEAST as you climb out of the valley into Nunnelly. Once you make it on top you will encounter THE ROLLERS and finally the flat finish by the airport.
The second 5K is identical to the first.
This race can be done as a individual or a Relay Team.
