Why not throw a little ride in with your run? Or a run in with your ride? The Minnesota Duathlon is just the place to do it with this 3.1-mile run - 16.8-mile bike - 3.1-mile run through the heart of Dakota County Technical College. This race is set for July 30, 2017 and welcomes all single participants or relay teams, no matter your ability, on a race you'll always remember.  Plus you will get the 2017 Cycling Jersey and a stained glass finisher's medal. 

"Running is a great sport..cycling is a great sport..why not marry the two and place it in the beautiful countryside of Minnesota," John Larson, Race Director. But you don't have to be a running or cycling pro to compete. We hope you can do this race with the bike that is sitting your garage right now. The race will place cyclists into different categories, depending on the style of bike used: road, mountain, commuter, or single speed.
