New Year’s Duathlon & Fundraiser
Supporting St. Johns Shelter Program for Women and Children
St. John’s mission is to support homeless women with children to advance from a point of crisis to a position of self-sufficiency. St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children is the ONLY shelter program in Sacramento County focused exclusively on women with children – the most vulnerable of the homeless population. Since 1985, the program has provided a safe and supportive haven to more than 23,000 displaced women and children.

First and second runs – Both runs are the same course, and are mostly on single track trails heading out of the transition area and circling back to the first aid station at mile one and then finishing with another loop to the finish line.
Bike – The bike course is a one loop 7-mile course on roads within the State Park. The course is winding and twisting turns with some small hills and descents.
The Transition area will be on a first-come basis, with the exception of Reserved Bike Racks for TRI Clubs. The transition area at all TBF Racing events is for athletes only. All non-athletes must remain outside of the transition area at all times on race day. Athletes may choose their transition spot from any of the non-reserved racks – reserved racks will be marked for Tri Clubs. Glass or bottles are not allowed in the transition area.
