Running and biking event coming to Rouge Park

Tour de Troit will present a duathlon, which features cycling and running portions of the event, in Detroit's Rouge Park. This event, billed as the Rouge-A-thlon, will begin at 9 am with a 5K run. It will be followed by a 10K bike ride and then followed by a second 5K run. The entire event will be chip-timed, to the finish line.

This will be a total of 20 kilometers around the largest park in Detroit, with stunning paved pathways and winding roads.

This inaugural race will be limited to 250 participants. There are 50 slots available for VIP registration which will include priority placement in the transition station, a premium t-shirt, and a TDT branded running towel. The VIP option may be selected at checkout during the online registration process.

This event is not sweeper supported, which is important for the cycling portion of this race. Participants are encouraged to bring their own bicycle tools, tubes, pump, and other equipment. Registration will include the duathlon, a beer, Amicci's Pizza baked on site, and a finisher medal. Proceeds from this event go towards Friends of Rouge Park.

This race is a partnership between Tour de Troit, the Kidney Foundation and the Friends of Rouge Park. More details and on-line registration are available here.
