The West Creek Duathlon & 5k consists of a variety of races for all ages from youth to adult.   The races includes adult/junior non-draft and draft-legal duathlons, a youth duathlon, and a 5k for all ages.  All races are held on a multi-loop course that is closed to vehicular traffic.  To celebrate this early-season winter race, you can look forward to a fire pit, smores, hot chocolate, and food trucks on top of a great, fun day of racing.  All LRF events fund our free fitness programs which teach life skills to low-opportunity communities.
