The Bizarro Duathlon 10/31/2009

The Bizarro Duathlon is back and just as crazy as ever! The event takes place this Saturday, October 31st. The Austin Duathletes are doing their part to keep the Austin area weird by hosting the reverse order duathlon consisting of a 15 mile bike, 2 mile run, and finally a 15 mile bike out in Smithville, TX. Athletes have the option to race in Halloween costumes (not required).

How does the reverse duathlon order work?
You will start on the bike, rather than the run. Transition will work exactly as a traditional duathlon, rack your bike and run. Following the run, you will transition back to the bike and complete to complete the course. Directions for how to rack your bike and retrieve your stuff from transition following the race will be provided in the race packets.

You can register online here. The cost to register for individuals is $35 and $55 for Relays. **Please note: Registration fees will increase by $10 if you register at packet pickup. ***

Athletes can also register during packet pick up hours between 10am and 6pm Friday, October 30th. Packet pickup will take place here at Jack and Adam's.
