We have had many over the years come to this duathlon and everyone agrees, it is one of the best early duathlons out there. The transition area is at the Cannon Falls pool parking lot on pavement. The whole course is along the Cannon River and if you want a short cut, make it a triathlon and cross the river to the other side. But honestly, you will love this Duathlon as it winds along the river. If it’s your first time at this event you will see why we call it the Falls Duathlon on the first run when you go up the trail next to the falls and later back down on the other side.
