While the National Duathlon Festival will feature top competitors from all over the country vying for a spot on the US World Championship Team, there were many other races offered during the weekend of racing in Richmond. Rather than watching highly paid professional athletes perform, Herndon & Reston area lawyer Doug Landau would rather watch kids compete for the love of the sport. At the weekend multisport festival, Landau watched the children’s duathlon race. Kids of all shapes and sizes raced on foot and on their bikes around a short course that covered some parts of the adult championship course. Some of the youngsters were serious competitors and others were new to the “Run-Bike-Run” format. But as they toed the line at the start, they were all ready to have some fun and experience some of what it’s like to race on a championship course in front of cheering family, friends and fans.
