USA Duathlon announces Virtual Run Bike Run to support multi-sport companies impacted by COVID-19

These are challenging times. As we all navigate the momentous impact of COVID-19 on our daily lives and those of our loved ones, we want to provide an outlet for people to stay active, healthy and safe, and competitive if they choose to be, during this difficult situation.
The USA Duathlon Virtual Run Bike Run presented by Tower 26, with supporting partners TrueFormand FlipBelt, gives you the flexibility to be a multisport athlete on your own time at your own pace and in your own space.
You can complete the Virtual Run Bike Run inside on a stationary bike and a treadmill, or outside on your local roads, trails and bike paths. The three legs can be done all at once or broken into one leg per day. That’s the beauty of virtual racing. Regardless of your fitness level, we hope you join us for this Virtual Run Bike Run. While these are individual activities, we’re all in this together. This standard-distance challenge requires a 10km run, 40km bike, and 5km run which can be completed in any order through the duration of the event.
Entry into this event is FREE, but we encourage you to make a $35 donation to the USA Triathlon Foundation COVID-19 Relief Fund. Your donation will directly support race directors and coaches across the country who are desperately fighting to keep their events and businesses. You’ll also receive an exclusive finisher medal as a thank you! Additionally, the first 500 people to donate to the USA Triathlon Foundation will receive a complementary Flipbelt Classic Running Belt.
