The USAT Mid-Atlantic Region is pleased to announce the lineup for the 2017 USAT Mid-Atlantic Duathlon Race Series following a successful inaugural year of the series which is intended to increase visibility, opportunities, and participation in the multisport discipline of duathlon.
“We’re excited to partner with race directors to offer this opportunity for multisport athletes in our region who want to experience the rewards and challenges of a run-bike-run event,” said USAT Mid-Atlantic Chair, Robert Vigorito.
This 16-event series of standalone duathlons is open to all adult athletes and features USA Triathlon sanctioned events held on a variety of terrain (trails, cross country, road) with short and long distance options for the beginner to the experienced duathlete. Participants will be required to complete an online form to sign up for the series before they will qualify for a 10 percent discount on registration for all races they sign up for in this series. Participants will be required to finish a minimum of three series events to qualify for a special participation medal.
The 2017 USAT Mid-Atlantic Duathlon Race Series kicks off Saturday, February 25 with the Northeast Park Duathlon in North Carolina and concludes in October with the Hagertown Duathlon #2 in Maryland.
