Preview the Courses
Feel free to tour the duathlon course before the race! The courses will have fresh pavement markings. The running leg starts at Riverview Orchard’s business sign. Follow the red pavement marking at the Droms Road intersection and the turn-around point on Droms Road. The bike course goes east on Riverview Road. It will go to the turn around at 64 Riverview Road. The course comes back Riverview to the transition area at Riverview Orchards.
Volunteers will be stationed at the intersections on race day, but please note that it is the athlete’s responsibility to know the course.
Athletes will begin with a 2 mile run on a flat, fast course starting at Riverview Orchards and heading west to a turnaround on Droms Road that takes them back to the start. The same course will be repeated after the bike.
Cyclists leave the transition area and travel about 6 miles on Riverview Road. There will be a turn around at 64 Riverview Road. Volunteers will be stopping traffic. You will come back Riverview Road to the transition area at Riverview Orchards. Please note that while there is some brand new pavement on Riverview Road there are also a few rough patches on the way out. These will be marked with chalk paint on race day. Please stay to the right when possible. When road conditions do not allow please ride safely. We ask that everyone say 'on your left' when passing to ensure a safe course.
The roads are not closed to traffic.
