Fayetteville’s Duathlon Race for Women to Take Place in Early June
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Parks and Recreation will host the fifth annual Ladies Du Fayetteville race, a duathlon for women, on Saturday, June 12, 2021. Fayetteville is excited to host the duathlon this year after the absence of the race in 2020. The atmosphere of the Ladies Du Fayetteville is a unique multi-sport race experience for women athletes. We welcome women, non-binary, and gender non-conforming athletes to participate in the Du. This year’s in-person race will have some modifications to ensure safety for participants and staff. A virtual race will also be offered to create additional, alternative accessibility to the duathlon.
The Ladies Du Fayetteville uses a 2-mile run / 11-mile bicycle ride / 2-mile run format and will take place on the paved trails around and near Lake Fayetteville. Participants have the option of competing individually, as a two-person relay team, or a three-person relay team. Virtual race participants may choose their own course, race anytime between June 12 and 27, and submit their times to verify completion.
Online registration closes June 10 at 11:59 p.m. Registration fees are $50 for individual entries, $90 for two-person relay entries, and $135 for three-person relay entries. All registrations include a technical sleeveless top and a finisher medal. In addition, event photo downloads are provided post-event at no cost.
The Ladies DU Fayetteville has a tradition of providing a supportive and rewarding race experience. This event is made possible from the support of our sponsors: UAMS Northwest, Greenway Dental Care, Clif Bar Co, Einstein Bagel Bros, Athletic Brewing Co, Chamois Butt’r, and Go Go Squeez.
