God's Country "Fat Tire" Duathlon

The Cow Town Cycling Team and Jewel Cartoons would like to invite you to the God’s Country Off-Road Duathlon. For 10 years this event has been offering up “Fat Tire” fun from beginners to experts alike. Come join in the fun on April 10, 2011 at the Lawrence River Trails and start your multisport season off with us.

This year we are focusing on a well-organized fun event that anyone can do and will not break the bank. For an entry fee of only $30.00 you get a multi-sport event with chip timing. Where else can you find that? Entry fee includes one-day license, custom awards, post-race refreshments/food and a delightful course that any ability level will enjoy.

Early entry discount ends April 1, 2011. Please visit http://www.active.com/triathlon/lawrence-ks/gods-country-offroad-duathlon-2011 to register today.

  • Individual and Team divisions are available.
  • Part of the bike course will route you up on the levee to allow ample passing.
