Dirty Duathlon results are up.

It's time for the Central Iowa Trail Association's annual Des Moines Dirty Duathlon!

Join CITA for a great day of mountain biking, trail running and hanging with the funnest people around at our Center Trails. Grab the family, grab your friends, politely escort them down to Greenwood Park and then apologize for grabbing them. But they will thank you because there’s something for everyone! Rock the Du on your own or partner up (1 runner, 1 cyclist) if you’re skeered to tackle the whole thing alone.

**100% of the proceeds will go toward upgrading the Center Trails in Spring 2015.**
CITA already has a professional plan commissioned by the City of Des Moines, and we need money and volunteers to put it in place! If you don’t want to participate in the Dirty Duathlon, we can always use volunteers – Volunteer Here.

11:00 Sprint Du - 2-mile trail run, 6-mile mountain bike
12:00 Kids Du - 1 lap run around the pond, 1 lap bike around the pond
1:00 Dirty Du - 2-mile trail run, 10-mile mountain bike, 2-mile trail run

Want to race on our amazing single-track trails but aren't ready to conquer both the run and bike? Contact CITA via Contact Us and let us know!  We will try to set you up with a perfect partner, so be sure to mention if you are a biker or runner and if you are "in it to win it" or "just along for the fun ride."

Unique awards presented to the top Male, Female, and Relays.
