Scranton Duathlon 2018

Race as an Individual or Relay Team

The Scranton Duathlon is a 5k Run, 20k Bike, 5k Run race which starts and finishes at the Olive Street Trail head on the Heritage Trail. The events goal is to foster a spirit of health, competition and comrade between area athletes.

Athletes and Athletic Supporters,

We will need to postpone the Scranton Duathlon until next year (2019). The permitting (imagine the city and PennDot making this easy….), insurance, safety and support related issues that come with putting on an event of this nature make it necessary to delay the event. We will put a full year of dedication into these matters. If you signed up a full refund will be issued. Please contact me directly with questions Corey Strauch or my cell 570-687-7946. Thank you for the support and cheers to next year.

Warm regards,

Corey Strauch, Race Director

P.S. The date will most likely move to early spring to avoid conflict with Fall marathon training and other summertime commitments.
