The duathlon is a run-bike-run combination, multisport race. Held as a standalone race or in conjunction with a triathlon, duathlons typically range from 50 to 200 competitors. Run-Bike-Run races are popular with athletes who may not be the best swimmers and in areas without easy access to beaches and where the weather isn’t always conducive to swimming. Luckily, if you would like to get started in duathlons or get better at racing them, there are many free training plans available.
