_ 2017 Watertown Share The Road Duathlon & 5K:
The Share the Road event consists of both a run/bike/run duathlon and a 5k run/walk. As the events take place at the same time, you cannot participate in both.
The duathlon's first segment is a 3-mile route through residential area of Watertown and Riverside Park. Then you will transition to a 20-mile well marked route through the scenic countryside with rolling hills north of Watertown. The final segment will be a 2-mile run through Riverside Park and residential area of Watertown but with a different twist than the first segment. There will be aid stations in transition area and a sag wagon on the bike route. We would like this to be a family friendly event as well a competitive event!
The duathlon transition area will open at 7:30 a.m. and close at 8:45 a.m. Start time for the duathlon and the 5k run and walk is 9:00 a.m., with duathlon participants leaving first.
Awards will be for the top 5 for each age division for the duathlon and 5k. Each participant will receive a high visibility long sleeve tee shirt, custom finisher medal, a safe and well marked course and fun and music during and after the race. Age groups for Duathlon Male & Famale Finishers: 12- under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
