What is Old School Aquathon?
The 2013 Old School Aquathon Series consists of one aquathon (swim-run) race in the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina. We ran this as a 3-race series in
2011 and 2012 but have moved to one event per season.
Swim-run events have been called
biathlons, aquathlons, splash-n-dash, and various other names over the years. We like Aquathon because it is easy to say.
Our 2013 race consists of one race on July 4.
Race #1 and done: July 4 - AM RACE! 500 meter swim / 2.5 mile run / 500 meter swim at Harris Lake County Park - sign up coming soon
