Once again, one of the great endurance challenges is about to take place right in our own beloved Gunks, the 3rd annual American Zofingen Duathlon.http://www.americanzofingen.racesonline.com/
For the truly adventurous (former regular G-com'ers Edk and myself are both doing long course this year), there is the Full Monty:5.0 mile trail run / 84.0 mile road bike / 15.0 mile trail run. Very demanding hills throughout (2,914 feet climbing on run course; 8,121 feet climbing bike course).
For those who would like to just get a taste of the epic adventure, there is also the Short Course option:Short Course: 5 mile trail run / 29 mile road bike / 5 mile trail run, on the same circuits as the long course
Go BIG and go LONG, or go Short and then drink beer and heckle Ed and I and the rest of the LC crew as we go around again, and again...
Yours truly is going to attempt to win the prime for the lowest combined SOS Survival of the Shawangunks
and A-Z time.
(alas - the 3rd place SOS finisher is also racing A-Z, so I really have my work cut out for me, to try to overcome the 17 minute deficit)
Wish us luck! Hope to see you there!
