Cranberry Kids Duathlon
The Cranberry Kids Duathlon is a run-ride-run event. Kids age 5-14 run approximately 0.5 miles, then ride along offroad trails for about 0.8 miles and then run the same 0.5 mile run course onto the finish. ALL KIDS MUST WEAR A HELMET WHEN ON THEIR BIKE AND BIKES WITH TIRES THAT CAN HANDLE RIDING OVER GRASS, GRAVEL, TREE ROOTS AND ROCKS ARE REQUIRED. The bike course is all off road. This is intended to be a fun event. All participants will receive an overall time, but age group awards will not be distributed.
