Off-Road Duathlon run-bike-run race returns to Laurel Hill

Annual Off-Road Duathlon

The three-part race will feature a two-mile run followed by a seven-mile bike ride and will finish with another two-mile run, on the scenic off-road trails of Laurel Hill County Park. 

Charleston County Parks will host the annual Off-Road Duathlon at Laurel Hill County Park in Mount Pleasant on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022. Registration is now open through Jan. 10.

The three-part race will feature a two-mile run followed by a seven-mile bike ride and will finish with another two-mile run, on the scenic off-road trails of Laurel Hill County Park. The event is beginner-friendly.

“This is a great event for beginners who are looking to venture into triathlons or other multi-sport races,” said Anne Moore, endurance coach and partner with the Off-Road Duathlon. “It’s also a fun option for current athletes who are looking for some cross-training in the off-season.”

The race will begin at 8:30 a.m. A transition area will be used for setup between legs of the race. The bike leg of the event is best suited for knobby, wide-tired bikes.

All participants will receive a finisher medal, and awards will also be given to the top three male and female finishers.

The race is open to ages 14 and up. Participants ages 14-15 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone. Helmets are required, and earbuds, pets and strollers will not be allowed on the race course.

Registration is $55 per person, and is available now at CharlestonCountyParks.com. Registration for the race must be made in advance, and registration closes Monday, Jan. 10. On-site registration will not be available. Packets may be picked up prior to race start.

Laurel Hill County Park is located between Highway 17N and Highway 41 in Mount Pleasant.

Laurel Hill County Park features several miles of running, walking and biking trails that wind through a variety of landscapes.

General admission to the park for trail usage is $1 per person.
