Feb 18 - Desert Classic Duathlon


McDowell Mountain Park, 16300 McDowell Mountain Park Dr, Scottsdale, AZ 85268


About the Event

Over the past 21 years DCD has attracted Ironman & Xterra World Champs, Olympic Triathlon & Cycling Gold Medalists, and thousands of athletes from all over the southwest including AZ, CA, & NV multisport clubs. We’re proudly continuing that prestigious position as the official multisport season kickoff, and are committed to delivering a challenging and exciting duathlon to kick the southwest into gear for years to come!

Don’t let our prestigious history make you think this is a “elite-only” event; Desert Classic Duathlon has always been and will continue to be a season kick-off for ALL athletes from first-timers to multisport pros! As part of the 2017 Champions Cup, individuals and multisport clubs can get a jump on building points towards the 9/9 Cup Championship!

2017 Desert Classic Duathlon features a new, rugged 5k run course that is entirely off-road, and we’re making some awesome changes to the bike courses to bring back the mountain bike version!
