Announcing the ROUGE-A-THLON!
Tour de Troit's first duathlon is here! We're combining our two loves (cycling & running!) in one mega-fun event on June 25th in Rouge Park.
The Rouge-A-thlon begins at 8AM, starting with a 5K run, followed by a 10K bike ride, followed by a second 5K run to the finish line.
That's 20 kilometers around Rouge Park's stunning paved pathways and and winding roads. Proceeds from this event go toward Friends of Rouge Park to maintain its active infrastructure.
Registration is now open. Spots are limited to 250 participants, so don't wait!
We have 50 VIP tickets available for $125, which includes premium placement at the wave starts and the bike-to-run transition area, a premium t-shirt and TDT branded signature smart wool socks. Regular tickets are available for $75 and include ride entry and a commemorative t-shirt. Refreshments will be served to all participants following the race.
Details are here.
