2013 DOUGHMAN Race Information

The 2013 DOUGHMAN:

Eat+run, eat+'swim', eat+bike!


Race the DOUGHMAN with a 4-person team in a relay format with each team member performing an individual eating+athletic leg culminating in a final team eating+sprint leg to the finish line. The race comprises 1 bike leg, 1 aquatic activity leg (requires some running), and 2 run legs. One vegetarian and one vegan can be included per team. Non-vegans should assume they are eating eggs and cheese.

The race route hasn't been set yet, but the two running legs are normally 1.75 to 2.5 miles, the "swim" leg is a run followed by an activity in the water (not a lap swim), and the bike route is less than 10 miles. Here's the breakdown by food type: Bike: vegetarian; run: vegan; run: omnivorous; swim: omnivorous.

DATE: Saturday, May 25, 2013
Start and Finish Line: Durham Centre Parking Lot (corner of Rigsbee and Seminary)
