Erie Duathlon in support of the Erie Cancer Wellness Center . The Erie Cancer Wellness Center seeks to support and comfort individuals and families who are facing the impact of cancer. The programs offered by ECWC are free of charge to anyone who is living with a cancer diagnosis, who is caring for someone with cancer, has a loved one with cancer or has experienced a cancer related loss. ECWC welcomes all and strives to nurture and empower people living with cancer through their evidence-based healing classes, programs and services.
The Erie Duathlon will be a 5K run, followed by a 20K bike, and finished with a 5K run. The race will begin and finish at Pleasant Ridge Park in Fairview and will consist of a course through the beautiful county roads surrounding the park in Fairview and Girard. The course is designed to engage the veteran racer but at the same time achievable for the rookie or hobbyist. All are welcome! Athletes can compete as an individual or as a two-person relay (runner and cyclist).
An Erie Kids Duathlon will take place at the conclusion of the Erie Duathlon, open to children 3-13.
