Virginia Beach Cyclocross Winter Endurance Challenge
Race Information: Fat Tire Duathlon - December 13, 2009
The Fat Tire Duathlon consists of a 5K cross country run in and around the grounds of the Sportsplex taking advantage of the trails and manmade hills in the complex. This is followed by a 10 Mile two loop bike course along grassy trails, double track dirt roads, single track trails through the woods, over some hills and even some riding on the pavement. Mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes and hybrid bikes are allowed. No road bikes please. The bike portion of this race is draft legal. You will then complete another 5K run and finish in front of the Sportsplex. Unique race premiums are offered to all participants. A festive post race party is planned with unique relay team, overall and age group awards presented at the finish. This is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event.
