A four event festival consisting of a Duathlon, 5k, Fun Run and Bike Time Trial. The most unique part of this event is the venue...it's held at a working airport! Yes...you'll run on a real runway!
The first 3 mile run is on the Drake Airport runway! Yes...the runway! The bike course is out and back on Scenic Hwy 71 and the final 3 mile run is flat and fast as well. The finish is located just in front of the airport terminal. This course is geared to people looking for a challenge, but is not too hilly for an early season test. A good first-time event for an individual or team or a great way to kickoff the race season for the seasoned athlete.
