No problem, grab some friends, family, or coworkers and sign up for the relay option (all race distances are opened to team competition). The event will be held on March 22, 2014 in the Drexel Recreation Center, 33rd and Market Streets.

Race and Distance options
The triathlon options consist of swim, cycle, and run or walk legs at the Dragon and Half Dragon distances where the Duathlon offers racers the option of replacing the swim with an additional running/walking leg. All racers will utilize a stationary bike and a treadmill for their respective cycle and run/walk legs.

Individual racers will have scheduled breaks between each leg while team competitors will compete in a relay format.
