Do you run? Ride a bike? Then do a DU! (Duathlon) It's twice the fun!

You ride a bike sometimes for fun, or as cross-training.

Or perhaps you're a cyclist...but you run when you can't ride. 

You never entered a triathlon because swimming isn't your thing.
(Or the idea of mixing all three sports into one race just seems, well, nuts.)

So try a duathlon!

There's no swimming in a duathlon.

You run...
...then ride your bike...
..and then run again!

You might pass a friend on the run...
Then your friend might pass you on the bike...
...so when you get off your bike you'll run as fast as you can to reach the finish line first.

It's more fun than any single-sport event!

I took these photos as I ran and rode my bike in the Scituate Duathlon.  (I had a small camera in my hand as I was running.  A camera on my bike took photos of the other cyclists as I rode.)

The same race company (Streamline Events) that put on the Scituate Duathlon is putting on a new duathlon this Sunday, May 4, in North Andover. (30 minutes north of Boston; just south of the NH border.)
