Welcome to the Chilly Willy Duathlon at beautiful Fort DeSoto park. This is the largest duathlon in the state of Florida and some of the best duathletes in all of southeastern United States will be represented. Come and join us for a closed course event friendly for the beginner and seasoned duathlete alike.
This year we are adding a 5k run for our running friends, you will be able to leave in the last wave and race a 5k and then watch the finish of the duathlon.
You begin by running a marked 5k course, followed by a 10-mile bike, followed by a 5k course.
There will be an elite wave. Overall male/female winners and each past age group winner male/female.
There will be two waves of duathletes, 40 and under male/female and 40 and over male/female. You must leave in the correct wave in order to be scored correctly.
This event has grown in popularity in the past five years and will close out at 600 entries this year.
* We will not be a USAT sanctioned event this year*.
We will enforce our rules of a safe and fair event for all duathletes. There will be drafting marshals on the course. A set of rules will be enforced by appointed staff. All athletes will receive a long sleeve Chilly Willy t-shirt. The event is chip-timed and athletes will receive splits for each segment of the race.
Awards are given three deep in each age-group in addition to the overall male and female finisher (3 deep).
**5k Run only awards will be the top 20 male/female finishers.
Our goal is to produce a safe and fun event. Bring your family and enjoy one of Pinellas Counties best parks. We look forward to seeing you perform your chilly best at the Chilly Willy Duathlon!
