USA Triathlon is heading back to Tuscaloosa, AL for the 2020 Duathlon National Championships!

USA Triathlon is pleased to offer three races in Tuscaloosa. On Saturday, May 30, the Non-Drafting Sprint and Standard National Championships will take place and on Sunday, May 31, Draft-Legal Sprint National Championships will be awarded.Details on Team USA qualification for all races can be found here. Whether you are looking for the opportunity to become a national champion or simply participate in the most competitive duathlon in the U.S., this race is for you.

Located on the Black Warrior River, Tuscaloosa is the fifth-largest city in Alabama and the regional center of industry, commerce, healthcare, and education for West Alabama. Tuscaloosa is home to a vast array of remarkable sights that are known only inside its bounds. With hundreds of restaurants, activities, museums, and parks, it has managed to become one of Alabama's most progressive cities. Home of the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa has been named one of America's "100 Best Communities for Young People", one of the '50 Best College Towns", and offers a refreshing atmosphere, historic features, and bustling nightlife. 

As in past years, you can race in all three championship events. No qualification is required to participate in any of the three events.
