2013 Dirty Spokes Georgia Off-Road Duathlon Series

The Georgia Off-Road Duathlon Series 2013 will consist of three races – the first race of the series will be the Dirty Spokes Duathlon At Fort Yargo State Park (March 9, 2013), the second race of the series will be the Dirty Spokes Duathlon At Heritage Park (April 13, 2013), and the Series Finale will be the Dirty Spokes Duathlon At Allatoona Creek Park (May 18, 2013). We are thrilled to offer a couple of different race formats this year! That´s right... you can race in the traditional "Run, Bike, Run Format" OR "Run, Bike Format"! Looking to get your feet wet and see what this is all about? Try the Run, Bike Format! Series points will be earned at each event and awards will be presented to the top 3 finishers in each age division.

*Series awards will be presented at the Dirty Spokes Duathlon - Allatoona Creek Park on May 18th; winners must be present as awards will not be mailed.

Here´s the skinny… we are using a "point system" to reward and separate the top finishers from the pack – the point system is similar to a NASCAR points system or possibly other "points series races" around the way in mountain biking or other similar athletic events. The Georgia Off-Road Duathlon points series will be tracked ⁄ recorded by our staff throughout the 2012 calendar - starting with the Dirty Spokes Duathlon at Fort Yargo State Park and ending with the Series Finale at the Dirty Spokes Duathlon At Allatoona Creek Park. In order to qualify for the Championship you ⁄ your team must enter 2 of the 3 events (Series Points may ONLY be earned in the Run, Bike, Run Format). You may race as a solo rider or as a team (in order to quality for Championship Points Series you must race in 2 of 3 of the races in the SAME discipline ⁄ category ⁄ teams must consist of the same people no alternates). If there is a tie at the end of the series in any category we will determine winner by fastest overall time (Dirty Spokes Duathlon Allatoona Creek Park course) - if there is still a tie we will determine winner by rock, paper, scissors!
