Duathlon National Championships
Saint Paul, Minnesota will be the new destination for the USA Triathlon Duathlon National Championships in 2014 and 2015. Sprint and Standard races will be hosted on July 19, 2014, with the Harriet Island Regional Park as the hub for all race-day activity. While in Tucson/Oro Valley, the race had been the largest duathlon west of the Mississippi River, pulling athletes from 44 states in the process. In 2014, you have a chance to participate in one of the largest duathlons ever, where we expect all 50 states to be represented by the best run-bike-run athletes in the nation.
USA Triathlon will offer two race distances for the event — a standard 5k run, 35k bike and 5k run, and a 3.25k run, 23k bike, 3.25k run for the sprint. Whether you are looking for the opportunity to compete to be a national champion or simply participate in the most competitive duathlon in the U.S., this race is for you. The capital of Minnesota, Saint Paul is considered one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the country and has an extensive statewide trail system featuring more than 620 miles of paved trails managed by the DNR. The city boasts 104 landmarks on the National Register of Historic Places, and the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport is just eight miles from downtown Saint Paul.
As race information is developed it will be placed in its corresponding location on this page.
Registration will open in the winter months of 2014.
