The New Year’s Duathlon and 5K Run/Walk are fundraising events. Our FREE New Years Duathlon is a great TBF tradition and we also have in addition to our Duathlon (2 mile run – 6.5 mile bike – 2 mile run) a 5K Run/Walk to help support our official Charity.

The first 250 FREE spots in the New Year’s Duathlon are FREE. The next 250 entries are $25 entry fee with proceeds from each entry donated to our official Charity: Maria & Joseph’s Ministry For The Poor. After 500 athletes the entry fee will increase to $35.

The first 100 spots in the New Year’s 5K are $15. Prices will increase to $25 for entries after that.

For the New Years Duathlon there will be an Overall Champion prize for the first overall male and female finisher along with second and third place male and female overall awards.

For the New Year’s 5K Run there will be 10-year age group awards for male and female runners for first through third place. There will also be raffle prizes for all competitors who stick around and insert their bib number in the raffle bin. Winners must be present to collect prizes that will include apparel, training equipment and gear, XTERRA Wetsuits, and TBF Racing gift certificates.
