Wisconsin's Premier Duathlon
SUNDAY, APRIL 23 2017 | RIVERSIDE PARK | WATERTOWN, WI
Packet pick-up will be Saturday, April 22 11am-2pm at Grinwald Ford
and Sunday, April 23 7-8:30am at Riverside Park
Our goal is to bring awareness to the Watertown community just how important it is to share the road with others that are walking, running, biking and driving. We want everybody to be safe while they enjoy whatever activity that brings them happiness and good health. The proceeds from the event will go to Watertown and surrounding areas towards projects such as Safe Routes to School, bike lanes, recreational trails and more. We are excited to make Watertown a safer and healthier community.

The Share the Road event consists of both a run/bike/run duathlon and a 5k run/walk. As the events take place at the same time, you cannot participate in both.
The duathlon's first segment is a 3-mile route through residential area of Watertown and Riverside Park. Then you will transition to a 20-mile well marked route through the scenic countryside with rolling hills north of Watertown. The final segment will be a 2-mile run through Riverside Park and residential area of Watertown but with a different twist than the first segment. There will be aid stations in transition area and a sag wagon on the bike route. We would like this to be a family friendly event as well a competitive event!
The duathlon transition area will open at 7:30 a.m. and close at 8:45 a.m. Start time for the duathlon and the 5k run and walk is 9:00 a.m., with duathlon participants leaving first.
Each participant will receive a high visibility long sleeve tech shirt, safe and well marked course, fun and music during and after race. Finisher medals will be given to all non-awarded duathlon finishers. Awards will be given to overall male and female finishers for both duathlon and 5K, 2 person team, 3 person team and top 5 finishers in all age divisions for both races. Age groups are as follows...Male & Famale Finishers: 12- under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

There are four ways to participate in the Watertown Share the Road event: you can compete in the duathlon by yourself, on a team of two (a runner performing the 1st and third legs, and a cyclist performing the second leg), or on a team of three (each participant performing a leg). You can also sign up for the 5k run/walk. Because the duathlon and the 5k are taking place at the same time, you cannot compete in both events.

Registrations before April 1, 2017 are guaranteed a long-sleeve shirt. We'll do our best to supply shirts for registrations April 1 and after but do not guarantee.

August 26, 2014 was a perfect evening for a quick training bike ride. Feeling good, strong, and in tapper mode with 12 days from Ironman Wisconsin. For some, it may not be a big deal, but was for me, a guy who was overweight and couldn’t even run a ½ mile 6 years prior. I was on the verge of one of my greatest life accomplishments. Just like that, the lights went out, and found myself left for dead on the side of the road. I found myself facing a lot of unknowns in life; fortunately many friends, family, and people I never met stepped up to help me and my family through this rough time. One being March 2 November race series. M2N organized a fun bike ride and run/walk called “Share The Road”, with all the proceeds going to support my family. With all the generosity from everyone it was a no brainer to somehow give back.
I found a great group of people with the same passion as I have, health & wellness of the community, and being safe while doing such activities. That is where Watertown Share The Road began. We formed a pedestrian/bicycle advocacy group, and decided to organize an event to help raise funds to go towards community projects to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. Watertown Share The Road Duathlon & 5k Run/Walk was started. What might just seem like another race, it’s truly much more. Whether a seasoned veteran of the triathlon community or an inspired individual looking for that one push for a healthy change of life, this event is for everyone. I can’t explain why things happen, nor why I am still here, but I can say my drive has changed. I never want to see anyone to ever go through what I did. That is why I have made it part of my life to bring safety and awareness to not only bikes but pedestrians and motorists as well. A huge thank your from the Kleinsteiber Family, and all of the Watertown Share The Road committee!
