|Spring Classic Duathlon:-|
|Distance: Run 3.1 Miles, Bike 15 Miles, Run 3.1 Miles|
The Spring Classic Duathlon is a great opportunity for triathletes to shake off the winter-season rust and for the duathletes to get in an early season race. The event is contested almost entirely on Marine Dr, which is closed to vehicle traffic a rarity in the sport. (Note: The exception is the 13 residences, some of which are 2nd homes, and use 138th Ave to come and go but most athletes rarely see a vehicle while on course).
There are no railroad tracks on the bike route just 15 miles of smooth pavement ideally suited for fast times. The course is virtually flat with the only appreciative elevation gain or loss occurring as you travel beneath the Glenn Jackson Bridge. And for the novice athlete, the sense of safety from not having to be overly concerned with vehicle traffic makes this an event ideal introduction to the world of multi-sport racing.
