Tour de Troit presents a duathlon in Detroit's Rouge Park! We're combining our two loves (cycling & running!) into one mega-fun event in Rouge Park.
There are two options for this event- a 5k-10k-5k event or a 10k-20k-10k event.
Registration includes the duathlon, which is chip-timed. Proceeds from this event go towards Friends of Rouge Park to maintain its active infrastructure.
Packet pickup for this event will be day-of only at Rouge Park.
GETTING TO THE EVENT:
The 2019 Rouge-A-thlon will be held in beautiful Rouge Park located in Detroit, MI USA. A map may be found HERE. Please note that there will be traffic construction on Joy Rd. We suggest entering in off of Plymouth Rd.
Parking may be found in the Brennan Pools parking lot. VIEW MAP
From the Brennan Pools parking lot, make your way to the event start, located in the open space South of the lot.
HELMET MANDATORY RIDE.
ALL cyclists must be wearing their BIB and a helmet to ride in this event. Double, and triple check that you have the appropriate gear before leaving the house.
To protect the safety of our riders, please note that no bags over 420 cubic inches (6.9 L) will be permitted on the ride.
FOOD, BEVERAGE & ENTERTAINMENT:
Online registration will close on April 10th at 11:59 PM. Limited onsite registration will be available starting at 7 AM. 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; participants will receive their VIP extras by mail after the event.
HOW TO REGISTER A RELAY TEAM
Go to the Rouge-A-thlon Runsignup registration page.
Click on the Sign Up box
Under Registrant #1 , enter in your information
Under Choose Your Event(s) , click on the box that says Group/Team
Under Group/Team, select the box that says Create New Group/Team
Type in a name for your team
Below, select whether your team will be all male, all female, or coed
Once you name your team and select your team member preference, you will be taken back to the registration page. Click the orange box that says Add Another Participant
Fill out the information for Registrant#2
Under Choose Your Event(s) , above G roup/Team should be the name that Registrant#1 created initially.
If not, click on the Group/Team box and select the name of the team that registrant#1 created.
Each participant will be asked to agree to the waiver, select their t-shirt size, and add in an emergency contact.
Each participant will be given the VIP upgrade option, we only recommend updating to VIP if you are the runner in the group as that is where you get special placement at the beginning of the race. Although, feel free to have both participants upgrade to VIP if you’d both like premium t-shirts and running towels.
The Next box will allow each participant to Donate to our organization. Remember, Tour de Troit loves you!
Great! Now we ask that you review both participants information and check out. We have to process the registration fees on one credit card, sorry! If nobody chose the VIP option, that breaks down your ticket price to $42.50 each, or, someone buys beers and lunch next time. Or if you were desperate for someone to join you, you can just ask them for the additional $15.
This event is not sweeper supported - please bring your own bicycle tools, tubes, pump, and other equipment.
