Welcome to the Mazda Chilly Willy Duathlon at beautiful Fort DeSoto park. It is now the Southeast Duathlon Championship. 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. 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 800 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 and a Chilly Willy water bottle. 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).
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 Mazda Chilly Willy Duathlon!
