road bike, and another 5km road run. The event is held at Mohawk Park in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The run course is fast
and flat on a closed paved road within Mohawk Park. The bike course is relatively flat with only a few rolling

The Chris Brown Duathlon provides many opportunities for friends and family to watch you perform. The transition
area near Shelter 6 is a great place to watch and cheer participants as they transition from one
segment to another. Athletes make two loops on the bike course on the main road near Shelter 6. This is a great place
to see all the competitors in action. The finish line is next to the transition area.

In March 2023, USA Triathlon updated the rules for multi-sport events. These changes strengthen the safety measures
for participants and additional flexibility for race directors. One notable change is longer
draft zones for all Age Group athletes with more time to complete the pass legally.
Increasing the draft zone distance from 7 meters to 10 meters for Sprint and Olympic distance races
and 12 meters for distances longer than Olympic.
Athletes have 20 seconds to pass through this zone during Sprint and Olympic distance races; 25 seconds
for distances longer than Olympic.
Unsportsmanlike-like conduct directed at race officials, USA Triathlon officials, volunteers, spectators or
fellow athletes is forbidden and will result in disqualification.
Shirts and requested sizes are only guaranteed if you register prior to March 1st due to ordering and
production timelines. After the deadline, shirts will be available on a first-come basis.
