Title: OC Tri and Duathlon
Location: Mission Viejo / Lake Forest
Description: 2k-40k-10k race
There are 1.5k & 2.5 mile open water swim and a mini-aquathlon suitable for kids as well as the international distance triathlon and the Du. The spectacular venue at the lake, the pristine ride through Santiago Canyon, and the primarily off road run through the hills of Mission Viejo will bring the 7th Annual OC Duathlon to the next level, and it will soon become a major stop and a “must do” on the Duathlon circuit.
The OC Duathlon has been combined with the OC Triathlon which takes place
Sunday the 20th. Starting with the swim in Lake Mission Viejo, the athletes will
bike a portion of Santiago Cyn and probably a small portion of the Aliso Creek Bike Trail from Santiago Canyon to the transition area by Marguerite and El Toro.
If this event is close to previous ones, riders will bike from Olympiad onto Marguerite, then onto El Toro / Santiago Cyn to a turnaround spot, then heading back along Santiago Cyn, enter the Aliso Creek MUP down to the parking lot by Marguerite to begin the run back to the lake.
Turnout is usually pretty good for this event as it is sanctioned by Triathlon USA. Be on the lookout for traffic controls during the morning in these areas.
Best of luck to all the competitors!
