We at Duathlon Central have been working hard to help promote the sport of duathlon in Ontario. We have been a little quiet the last week or so, but I know that Larry is busy scaring up interest from outside of Ontario for Nationals at the Toronto Triathlon Festival, and I have been hard at work digging up what I hope will be useful information for our Iron Hawk race preview. Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far by viewing and using our site! We are up to over 700 views and our Twitter account has just reached 100 followers. We hope that you have been able to use our resources effectively so far, and that you will continue to do so as the season ramps up.
We are still looking for our first crowd-sourced content, as we would love to see this site turn into a collection of articles, reviews and rants from duathletes of all areas. So please, if you put something together that you think may be useful, submit it to us! Subject matter that we would love to get an insider report on includes (but is not limited to):
- Tips for new duathletes just getting started in the sport
- A regional season preview/review from the southwest region (Windsor/Sarnia/London)
- A regional season preview/review from the east region (Ottawa/Kingston)
- A season preview/review of the women’s side of the sport
- Training tips, training tips, and more training tips!
Send us an email to email@example.com if you wish to become our correspondent for one of the above subject areas! You will have the honour of having your work posted on Duathlon Central, and we will also give you a picture and bio on the home page!
While we have your attention, make sure you register as soon as you can for your 2014 races. There are lots of great options for duathletes this year, including the first big test of the season at the Provincial Sprint Duathlon Championships at Iron Hawk in Harrow. So far there are 49 registered in the Sprint Duathlon and another 36 registered in the Do-A-Du. Tomorrow is also the last day for the early bird rate for the Toronto Triathlon Festival. After tomorrow, the registration cost is set to increase, so get your registration in today. Make sure you don’t sleep on this great opportunity! Below are all the links to the registration page, which can also be found in our Schedule & Results:

I hope everyone is as excited as we are to kick duathlon season into full gear!
