RUN, WALK & WHEN ONE SPORT IS NOT ENOUGH, JUST DU IT!
Time to dust off the cob-webs and start the multi-sport racing season with the 35th Annual Spring Classic Duathlon, Half Marathon, 10K & 5K! It’s time to see who stayed in shape all winter!
Enough Hibernating! Wake up, Get out & Race at the Annual Spring Classic!
Choose the Duathlon or any of the 3 different running distances and let’s Spring into Action!
DUATHLON – 5K RUN / 15 MILE BIKE / 5K RUN
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. This long-running event is contested almost entirely on Marine Dr, which is closed to vehicle traffic – a rarity in the sport. You will ride and run right along the mighty Columbia River with beautiful views to make the time fly!
It will be a flat & fast course…perfect for those new to the sport of Duathlon and Triathlon! And for you veterans, this will be a fabulous opportunity to go all out and see who stayed in good condition this winter!
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 event an ideal introduction to the world of multi-sport racing.
Home Depot Half Marathon, 10K & 5K – This beautiful, flat and fast course along the Columbia River is a wonderful event to set as a goal to keep your conditioning strong through the winter and spring cold and rainy seasons!
Our start/finish location at the Home Depot off Airport Way will allow us to relax and share our racing stories once we all finish! We will have high energy music, fun vendors, food and who is ordering the sunshine?!
