The Duck River Reservoir, located half way between Birmingham and Huntsville in Cullman, AL, is a brand new 640 acre lake used for drinking water and for recreation. The lake just opened to the public for fishing, and the trails around the lake are providing a place for hiking and mountain biking. Saturday August 21 will offer 3 off-road choices to choose from, triathlon, duathlon, and paddle triathlon where the swim will be replaced with either a SUP or kayak for those who aren't comfortable with the swim or simply want to do something completely different! Sunday August 22 will offer 2 off-road trail run distances, a 15K out and back route and a 30K full loop route. Start, finish, and transition will take place at the main boat launch just off of US Highway 278. The course offers stunning scenic views of the lake and dam, has fast flowy sections as well technical sections, and is 100% off-road with no road crossings. Come to North Central Alabama this summer and race with us, and discover this brand new gem!
