The Outdoor Playground of the West

USA Triathlon is pleased to call Bend, Oregon home of the 2017 Duathlon National Championships for the second consecutive year.

New for 2017, USA Triathlon will offer three races in Bend. On Saturday, June 17, there will be non-drafting sprint and standard-distance races. On Sunday, June 18, there will be a draft-legal sprint. Details on Team USA qualification can be found here.

Whether you are looking for the opportunity to compete to be a national champion or simply participate in the most competitive duathlon in the U.S., this race is for you.

Bachelor and the Cascade Mountain Range nearby, the cosmopolitan mountain town has become an international mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and people in search of healthy, active vacation destinations.
