Hot To Trot Reverse Duathlon

[Results][Photos] Flora Bama BiathlonThe 9th annual Hot To Trot Reverse Duathlon will be held on Saturday, October 18, 2008 at 07:00 in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama. This event features a 9.2 mile bike along the Gulf of Mexico, followed by a 5.6 mile run, then a 9.2 mile bike return to the start. The race begins and ends at the world famous Flora-Bama Lounge and Package. The best part of the race is the after party. Free beer and food with lots of great door prizes.

The course is pretty easy. The bike portion is completely flat with one over-pass on the way out and the same over-pass on the way back. No turns. It is scenic as you head west for the beginning portion with the shore of the Gulf on your left and impressive condos on your right. The run portion navigates a swamland in a clockwise fashion for 1 full lap. You return on the bike on the same road as you started.

This will be the second year for Dan and Jason, and the 1st year for Kim to compete in this great race. There is a reason Dan and Jason return every year. It is fun, challenging, and a great end-of-year goal to keep in shape. Who am I kidding? We go because it is in Gulf Shores, at the Flora-Bama, and the post race party.

If you get a chance don’t miss the Hot To Trot Reverse Duathlon.
