2013 Du the Asheville Duathlon:

  • Inaugural “Du the Asheville Du” - Race across the river, at Biltmore Estate

  • At 9am on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013, endurance athletes of all abilities will step to the start line, hearts booming in anticipation, to compete in the first ever multi-sport event held at Biltmore.
  • Are you ready to Du the Asheville Duathlon?!
  • This 5k road run, off-road 10.75 mile bike and then another 5k run through packed dirt and single track challenges both mind and body.

  • For the French aristocrat in all of us, this rough-cut, crown-emerald of a race sweeps participants through a mystical journey, back to a time, when the estate might have resembled an 15th century countryside plantation, complete with a game-stocked forest, working vineyards, and a cold mountain river rushing by.
  • Racers on this day will be lords of the land they claim under fast plowing feet and spokes.

  • And 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.

  • The inaugural Du the Asheville Du is limited to only 500 participants.
  • Early registration is encouraged to reserve a spot.
  • Registration is open at imathlete.com .

  • All participants will receive a specially designed (gender specific) custom race tee.
  • Additional information is available online at www.idaph.net .
  • Individuals and teams can register at imathlete.com.
  • Don’t forget to ‘like’ us on Facebook - “Du the Asheville Du.”

    Course Info:

    Duathletes will start their 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.

    Then 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 2nd run is for the adventure seeker, as it is the most challenging leg of the race, complete with dirt roads and technical single track trail.

    Biltmore is America’s largest privately-owned home. The 250-room French Renaissance-style chateau is located over 8,000-acres that include more than 80 acres of meticulously-tended gardens.

    Biltmore is a host to around one million visitors a year. To learn more about Biltmore, visit www.biltmore.com  or call 877-BILTMORE.
