2013 Avl Du Run

Start your Asheville Duathlon adventure with a 5k run on paved roads that will be a flat, out and back course starting at the Winery and paralleling the French Broad River.

The seminal moment is a pace quickening dash across the Estate’s signature 264 foot bridge standing mightily over the French Broad River. As racers pump across this stone-hardened trestle, they’ll slice through a refreshing undulating zephyr, forged below in the veins of the ancient river. Crossers are flanked by a dual set of cloverleaf-style railings, spanning the entire corridor, which unites the western and eastern hemispheres of Biltmore’s expansive 8000 acre property.

2014 Avl Du PreEvent Vineyard

Duathletes transition to mountain bikes and ride onto packed dirt roads over through the west side of the estate, where racers will slip by working vineyards, normally off-limits to the public. The bike will finish with a couple miles on paved trails on the east side. The bike course is mountain bike recommended. Cyclocross may be okay but there is rock and gravel on the wide carriage roads. No single track.

2014 Asheville Duathlon participants all agesThe second Duathlon Run is perfect for the adventure seeker, as it is the most challenging leg of the race, complete with dirt roads and technical single track trail. 2 or 3 person teams welcome in the Asheville Duathlon!

2014 10k Trail RunSafety Note: NO HEADPHONES allowed at the event, as they produce danger to yourself and others around you when needing to communicate at the event. You will receive a time penalty and even get DQ’d if you are found wearing them.

Race Tee is probably one of the best I own (and there are hundreds..). Second run course (if marked better at certain points) is great! I will train for this specifically again next year- I loved it. Bike course… was a challenging, yet fair course that is suitable for all levels of experience. — Brian DeRose, 2014 Participant
