2015 Harvest Duathlons
The Annual Harvest Duathlon began in 2010 and has grown to be the perfect summer race! In 2011, we added the Harvest Kid's Duathlon and in 2014 we began chip timing the kids (ages 5-10) as well! BOTH events are chipped timed by Endurance Promotions. The event is coordinated locally by a team of volunteers through Harvest Alexandria whose goal is to provide you with a challenging yet enjoyable Duathlon experience!
The race begins at the Alexandria Discovery Middle School in Alexandria MN which is located at 510 North McKay Ave
(From I-94: North on Highway 29, East on 3rd Avenue, North on McKay; and from Highway 29 (Parkers Prairie): South on McKay Avenue)
