Come join us for the inaugural Race Omaha Duathlon. This event has a lot to offer in terms of quality and fun for every participant. This early season race should be the first race of the year to measure your winter training. It should offer perfect temperatures, clear visibility of the country side and a festive atmosphere after the Race.

Race Omaha Duathlon - Offering an Individual race and Team Relay. The Team consists of one Biker and one Runner. The Runner will complete both run legs. Individual and Team Distances are the same: 2.5 Mile Run, 15 Mile Bike, 2.5 Mile Run.
The Run Course is an out-and-back route. All athletes will start from Memphis State Recreation Area and run through the park onto Country Road D. Continue on the soft gravel road to the turn around and then back to the Transition Area.
The Bike Course is an out-and-back route. All athletes will transition and exit Memphis State recreation area, riding through the town of Memphis (approximately 1 mile) and head out on Country Road 7 for the next 12 miles.
Both the Run and Bike Course will be the flattest and the fastest course you will ever race. If you don't post fast splits, you are not trying. You will be able to see for miles during the race unless there is still corn in the fields. Having an early season race like this will make your winter training worth the effort!
