About the Race
Portland’s first multisport race for children, The Portland Kids Duathlon, is presented by Benchmark Real Estate. The race gives young people ages 3-12 an opportunity to participate in the fast-growing world of multi-sport racing. The run, bike, run format of a duathlon is fun and approachable, a great race for non-swimmers and triathletes alike. All young duathletes will finish the race with a smile on their face, a medal around their neck, and a boost of self-confidence and pride. All profits from this race will be donated to the Foundation for Portland Public Schools. Both in-person and virtual race options available.
Transition will be at the triangle in front of Payson Park with separate transition areas for each race. The run courses will be out and back in Payson Park and bike courses will be on the Boulevard for the younger age groups and on the Back Cove Trail for the 8-12 year old race. All trails and/or roads closed to vehicle traffic. See the following link for distances and course maps at www.portlandkidsduathlon.com/racedetails.
