As the first race of the 2016 TriGulfCoast Youth Multisport Series, the 6th annual Maritime de Luna Du Youth Duathlon will be held March 13, 2016 at Pensacola’s Vince J. Whibbs Sr. Community Maritime Park.  The race will begin at 8:00 AM and will offer a scenic run-bike-run course for kids ages 6 to 15 (as of December 31, 2016).

Athletes will start in approximately 6 age-group and gender-specific waves.  Race distances are as follows:

Registration for the 2016 Maritime de Luna Duathlon – Presented by Running Wild is OPEN!  IMPORTANT NOTE: Effective January 1, 2016 USA Triathlon will reduce the price of Youth Annual Memberships to $10/year and will eliminate the Youth 1-day Pass. We hope that you’ll secure your spot in the 2016 Duathlon as soon as possible. HOWEVER, athletes who are not currently USAT Youth Annual Members whose membership expires after March 13 will save $5 by waiting until January 1 to register and purchase or renew their USAT membership on that date.  Our entry fee will still be just $25. If you have a question about this, please contact the race director.  Have a Happy Holiday!
