Ladies DU Fayetteville
Months ago when we announced a reschedule of the Ladies Du from June to October, we were optimistic that the pandemic situation in NWA would look a lot different come fall. Unfortunately, that is not the case. With that in mind, the Ladies Du Fayetteville duathlon race will no longer take place in 2020. The health and safety of our race participants in addition to our community has led us to the difficult decision to have to say, we will wait to see you until 2021.
The atmosphere of the Ladies Du and the unique race experience it provides to female athletes is hard to replicate in any other way. We look forward to planning this one-of-a-kind duathlon experience to take place on June 12, 2021. See you at the Du in 2021!
