Ladies DU Fayetteville

Ladies DU 2019


As we work through a rapidly changing and unpredictable situation in Fayetteville and throughout the world, health and safety remain our number one priority. We are committed to supporting our community and fulfilling our mission as we all work together to minimize the impacts and spread of COVID-19.

With that in mind, the Ladies Du Fayetteville duathlon race has been rescheduled from June 14 to Sunday, October 11, 2020. We delight in the atmosphere of the Ladies Du and the unique race experience it provides to female athletes. This is why we have chosen to postpone the event, allowing us to create and offer that one-of-a-kind duathlon experience at a later date this fall. The health and safety of our race participants, in addition to our community, remains our top priority. 

The updated training program dates and race details can be found below. Participants that are currently registered have been contacted with more details regarding options with the reschedule.
