Gleneagles Off-Road Duathlon

2012 Gleneagles Challenge Off-Road - Duathalon

EVENT DATE: April 28, 2012

Bushwhack Adventures is pleased to add the GEC-Duathlon, a trail run / mountain bike event to the Gleneagles Challenge activities in 2012. This off-road duathlon-type event will allow even more people to come out and enjoy the festival atmosphere of the Gleneagles Challenge.

Participants will be traveling a total of 9.3 miles. Estimated distances in each discipline are: running/trekking 4.7 miles and mountain biking 4.6 miles. The run/trek will be on hiking trails, and the biking will be on the Intermediate and Advanced mountain bike trails. This event is not a relay - participants will do both the run and bike.

The specific course route will be posted soon.

The event will start and finish at Wake County's Harris Lake County Park. Check the Schedule below for exact times.

Overall Male and Overall Female winners will get their half of their entry fees back and a 50% discount towards a future Bushwhack Adventures event. Age group awards will be dependent upon sufficient participant numbers.

All participants will get a Gleneagles Challenge pint glass and a Bushwhack Adventures wicking shirt.

Sponsored in part by Wake County Parks, Recreation and Open Space.

Participants will be required to have a hydration system (there will be no aid stations on the course), mountain bike and a bike helmet (when biking).
