The Du Series is back! All of our On-Road Duathlons are again eligible for points in the series.  You must complete a minimum of 2 events to qualify for awards.  Your 2 best scores will go toward your final points.  The series is open to anyone.  Membership in Tri-OKC is not a requirement to qualify for awards, but it will get you nice discounts on all Tri-OKC races!  The qualifying events are: March in Okarche, Draper On-Road, Fall Classic Sprint, & Fall Classic F1.  The Fall Classic F1 will be worth an extra 5 points, being the state championship! Train hard, race smart Tri-OKCers!
