Back Road cycling and run event grows


2017 Back Road 5K Run/Walk Duathlon registration open

Registration for the 2017 Back Road 5K Run/Walk Duathlon on July 4th in Wolcott is now open. 


The Back Road Duathlon is a 15 mile bike ride and 5K Run event through the beautiful town and surrounding countryside of Wolcott Indiana during the town?s famous Fourth of July Festival. In it?s sixth year, the event is organized by volunteers Kerry Miller and Shanna Shepard to support the Remington Wolcott Community Development Corporation. Miller said new this year will be a 10K run event and kid?s dash.

"Some participants requested a longer run event and we realized the course could easily accommodate a 10K. The kid?s dash is free. Ashley Clark, from Remington is organizing the kid?s dash and we thought it was an excellent way to get youth interested in health and fitness"

Miller added that electronic timing will also be used this year.

Participants may sign up for the full Duathlon or simply the 5K or 10K run/walk portion. Registration and packet pickup will be from 7-7:45 am EST at the corner of E. Market and Burke St.

Free Kids Dash begins at 7:45 am

The Duathlon begins at 8:15 am EST

5K & 10K run/walk begins at 8:30 am EST
