Chris Brown Tulsa Duathlon
The Chris Brown Tulsa Duathlon is a Short "Sprint" Distance Duathlon which will take place in scenic Mohawk Park in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mohawk Park has smooth, shady, and curvy paths. Once the course leaves the park cyclists will experience roads with a little more character and a much more relief.
This year participants can enjoy the services of Tulsa's most recent addition in the cycling industry, Spoke House Bicycles, to provide on the spot mechanical support. Mechanical support will be available primarily before the event.
For the kids this year, Spoke House has also offered to provide the Strider Adventure Zone (at no cost to the participants). The Strider Adventure Zone provides children a fun and exciting opportunity to learn to ride a bike using the Strider bicycles. Find more information about the Strider Adventure Zone on the Spoke House Facebook page.
Spectators, are you tired of being ignored? Well at the Chris Brown Tulsa Duathlon, you can expect shade, opportunities to see your favorite athletes, and on-site concessions, so you might bring a few extra dollars and a lawn chair.
*Athletes are expected to know and follow the rules and regulations set forth by the USAT and are expected to know the course.*
*The Chris Brown Tulsa Duathlon has only 400 slots available for registrants*
A Dedication To The Founder - Chris Brown
Chris Brown, a longtime Tulsa Community College professor and the founder of the Tulsa Duathlon, died on Friday, July 1, 2005. He was 61. Brown was born Dec. 1, 1943, in Santa Monica, Calif., to Mary (Young) and William Brown. He graduated with a master's degree in 1974 from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah. For the next year, Brown taught at Tulsa Public Schools. He then began working as an instructor in math and physics at Tulsa Junior College, now Tulsa Community College. In 1980, to fulfill a pledge to stop smoking and improve his health, he began running, swimming, bicycling and competing in triathlons. In the late '90s, Brown started the annual Tulsa Duathlon, in which participants compete in consecutive running and bicycling events. It was designed to promote health and a sense of community.
