Du and 5K
This is a USAT Sanctioned Duathlon.
Join us for our 4th Annual Du Bears Duathlon and separate 5K Run at the
San Pablo Reservoir.
>Duathlon - 2.35 Mile Run / 18.7 Mile Bike / 2.2 Mile Run
>5K Run/WalkVenue -
San Pablo Dam Reservoir
The Reservoir provides
the greatest course to challenge you, but not break you. The bike
course circles the Reservoir and encompasses the 3 Bears... Mama, Papa,
and Baby. But most important is the beauty of this venue. Whether it's
Summer, Spring, Fall, or Winter the foliage changes, the sun peaks over
the lake, or hides in misty fog. It's a photo moment every time ! We
have a gem here in the East Bay.
Course Description -Duathlon
get to cross the DAM. Great View! The run, 2.35 is half asphalt and half
trail. Off to your bike which will be racked in 10 year age groups by
gender. Ride around the Bears, come back in and here is the difference
on the second run. It will only be 2.2 miles, but you will appreciate
the shorter distance because the runs are rolling hills. Down the hill
make immediate left and down to the end of the Dam. Go around the
turnaround and back up to the finish line in the Upper Parking
Course Description - 5K
Take off with the Du'ers. The 5K will be on
the same route, but will continue down a gentle slope to the end of the
trail for the turnaround. Back up the trail and across the Dam
again... enjoy the view, but just for a moment (it is a race afterall!).
Back onto the asphalt and head for the Upper Parking lot (a short
hill) to the Finish Line.
The 5K awards are plaques to overall
Male and Female winners and Medals to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers
in each 5 year age group... not 10 years. All finishers receive a
Finisher Medal. For Duathletes we award plaques, 5 deep, in each 5 year
age group. Also, we take special pride in our older age groups... it's
tougher to do as we age. So, we give plaques to the Male and Female
winners in 10 year age groups, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+. And we
have competitors over 70 at each event!
