I'm out from under my rock, and wanted to remind everybody that the 4th annual American Zofingen Duathlon is coming up on the horizon - this year's date is Sun 10/12/2008.
In addition to the extremely challenging Long Course duathlon, which is 5m trail run/84m road bike/15m trail run, all on very hilly terrain, there is the more managable Short Course version, which is 5m/29m/5m.
(it's the identical course, just one lap of each, instead of 1/3/3)
Race takes place at the Pavillion near the Spring Farm parking lot, and uses the beautiful and challenging trails of the Mohonk Preserve, as well as the incredibly scenic (and hilly) roads in and around our beloved Gunklandia.
Come test your mettle on possibly the most challenging multisport course anywhere!
And it's right in your own backyard!!!!
Here's the event website:http://www.americanzofingen.racesonline.com/
For the 3rd time in it's 4 year history, I'll be toeing the line, hoping to make it thru yet again... come on out and race, or volunteer or just spectate.
Heckling is not only allowed, but encouraged.
PS - did I mention? There's FREE BEER afterwards!!!
