COME ONE, COME ALL..............The Peace Valley Duathlon is a VERY beginner friendly event!!

 

We encourage ALL new runners & bikers to come join us....NO hype, NO pressure....just have FUN! You can run in converse high tops and ride on a mt. bike if you'd like...everyone is welcome!  

You can register as an individual OR do it with teammates!! Teams can consist of 2 or 3 people, male teams, female teams or mixed)

The Sixth Annual Peace Valley Duathlon will be on May 11, 2019 at the beautiful Peace Valley Park...AKA: Lake Galena :-)

 ***PLEASE NOTE: JUST LIKE LAST YEAR....PVD '19 WILL SELL OUT WAY BEFORE RACE DAY....(Most likely by Early April!)***
                This is because we must limit the number of aesthetes for the safety of everyone! Please strategist EARLY!!

Again, PVD is VERY, VERY BEGINNER FRIENDLY!!!  We LOVE athletes new to the sport!!! Come one, come all!!!

Here are some reasons why you should NOT WAIT to register for PVD '19

1. The VERY beautiful & scenic courses!
2. Course selection: TWO distances to choose from!
      ~Short course: 2mi run~5.5mi bike~2mi run
      ~Long course: 5k run~11mi bike~5k run
3. Limited number of athletes!
      ~We will limit the number of athletes to 200 to ensure the safety of all duathletes. We anticipate the race to sell out by EARLY APRIL, so it is                            advisable to register early.
4. HUGE THREE INCH finishers medal for EVERYONE!!!!
5. TECH TEE's: The same awesome high quality tech tee's as last year BUT for the 6th anniversary, you will be able to pick the color of your t! 
                           (until we run out) See details below.
6. AWARDS: 
       ~Just like all Scoogie Events.....we have THE MOST AWESOME awards...(but of course you have to earn it:-)
       ~Top 3 Overall Male/Female & age groups 3 deep male & female – 15 and under, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69 and 70 and over. 
No mailing of awards or shirts. If you have to leave the race early for ANY reason, you must notify us to save your award.  If you do not, we cannot hold/store awards and will likely be given to a race day entry or someone else. It is simply too much to hold/store & inventory the awards. 
Note: If you are registered for this race and you registered in time to choose a t shirt size BUT you are unable to run for whatever reason, you will NEED TO CONTACT us BEFORE RACE DAY and let us know if you'd like us to hold on to your reserved giveaway for you to pick up at a future Scoogie Event. If you do not do this, we cannot hold you shirt and it will be given to someone that registered after the deadline. We cannot mail shirts. 
6. Results:
       ~Instant results available at finish. Results posted within 24-48 hours. 
~THE BEST FOR LAST:
       And THE BEST part of this event....we try very hard to garner a safe and fun atmosphere that allows duathletes of ALL abilities to enjoy themselves!
       We work VERY HARD at this.....We encourage ALL ABILITIES to come out.....WE LOVE FIRST TIMERS!!!!
       We'd be honored for PVD '19 to be your fist duathlon!
