Northern Nevada's only Duathlon event! Close to Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The RENO 5000 3rd Annual Firecracker Duathlon is a challenging course. Participants start off with a 5K (3.1 miles) Run/Walk. The run will be on paved roads and off-road, technical, single-track trails. There will be an aid station located at the halfway point. The 30K (18.6 miles)Bike will be 3 laps of a 6 mile out-and-back route, with aid stations every 3 miles. The bike course is on-road and hilly. After the bike portion, proceed back to the transition area, where spectators will be cheering you on, for your final 5K Run, which is the exact same course as the first 5K. 

NEW for 2013 is our SPRINT DISTANCE DUATHLON: 1 mile run, 6 mile bike, 1 mile run! SIGN UP HERE!

The RENO 5000 Firecracker Duathlon is a unique challenge that anyone 12 and older can accomplish!  There is a relay division, so if you are a pure cyclist, get a friend to do the run portions.  These teams are 2-person relay teams made of one runner and one cyclist.  It's a great way to race with a friend or loved one, or train for an upcoming triathlon like Donner Lake or Pyramid Lake! 

The RENO 5000 Firecracker Duathlon will start and finish in front of our "Presenting Sponsor" location:  Reno Cycling & Fitness located at 5260 Longley Lane, Reno NV 89511. CLICK HERE FOR COURSE MAPS of Run & Bike.  It's a fun way to celebrate your 4th of July! 

Enjoy the expo on race day!  Buy great items from our sponsors.  After racing, enjoy refreshments and food, then head to the awards ceremony & free raffle!  Age group & awards breakdown can be found HERE
Stick around for the free food, beer and fun!
