DUATHLON: 5-mile trail run / 14-mile mountain bike
The courses enjoy the nature and scenery of Scoggin’s Valley and Henry Hagg Lake. Many think these events are not quite as extreme as some of our other events. One could argue. Make no mistakes, there is filth and fun on this course... but maybe we scaled it down a tad to warm you up for the adventures we are working on for this summer. Liken it to jumping off a cliff instead of out of a plane.
For the Du: You complete the run, and then the bike. One run, one bike!
The course will take you around Henry Hagg Lake -- Biking guru, Todd McCarthy will be your entertainment director (course developer). The course will include a little bit of everything as it winds along the banks of Hagg Lake. The course primarily uses the lakes perimeter trail, with a couple sections of road mixed in.
The course is 5.2 miles with about 85% on trail. 15% is paved... we just use the pavement to get you to better trail! The conditions vary depending on weather and participants will experience a variety of tremendous terrain.
The route features some great trails and fantastic views. The course will use some of the trail system that encompasses the lake. The start and finish will both be at Boat Ramp C.
** The duathlon uses the same run course as the "trail run."
