Since 2009, Falls Duathlon has been a great way to get your multisport season started! It's only 30 minutes away from both St. Paul and Rochester.
We have had many over the years come to this duathlon and everyone agrees, it is one of the best early duathlons out there. The transition area is at the Cannon Falls pool parking lot on pavement. The whole course is along the Cannon River and if you want a short cut, make it a triathlon and cross the river to the other side. But honestly, you will love this Duathlon as it winds along the river. If it's your first time at this event you will see why we call it the Falls Duathlon on the first run when you go up the trail next to the falls and later back down on the other side.
The bike course is an out and back on CR 20 and the turnaround is about 0.1 miles before you get to CR50. The course is rolling hills but the rolling is very slight and long. The main thing you may deal with is the wind. Be prepared for open country riding as the wind may help you some and it may be a real pain in the bike seat at other times!
The last run is very different from the first run in that it runs out and back on the Cannon Valley trail. This is a beautiful course that is mostly shaded by trees that hang over the trails.
The swimming portion of the race will take place in the SDSU collegiate pool, while the biking will bring you through the surrounding Brookings area countryside, and the run will take you through the SDSU campus, finishing in the endzone of the new football stadium.

More than 1,000 women will walk and run to change the course of ovarian cancer at the Unleash the SHE 5K/10K in Rochester, Minn. on Sunday, May 1. Now in the race’s 6thyear, the Unleash the SHE race benefits the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA) and is organized by Final Stretch, Inc. MOCA is a statewide non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and funding research needed to detect ovarian cancer early and treat it properly.
To build on the race’s popularity, in 2015 there are several race updates. To accommodate the growing event, the race will now take place at the Rochester Community and Technical College. And to recognize the many men who support women impacted by ovarian cancer, new this year, an untimed 5K called the “Support the SHE” event will that will give men the opportunity to walk and run in solidarity with the women they support. Children can participate in a 1K Kids Fun Run.
As the event grows each year, many local ovarian cancer survivors, friends and family members take part in the Unleash the SHE race. Ovarian cancer is the deadliest of all gynecologic cancers, and because there is no test, it is often diagnosed at a late stage. More than 400 Minnesota women will be diagnosed with the disease this year.
Mayo Clinic gynecologic oncologist Dr. Jamie Bakkum-Gamez has taken part in the race in recent years to raise symptom awareness, but most importantly, to raise the money needed to fund ovarian cancer research. “Too often in my job, I see women dealing with the difficult emotions and physical hardships related to ovarian cancer, and I can only wish for something better. An early diagnosis test. Better treatments,” said Dr. Bakkum-Gamez. “That’s why I put so much effort into building a team and raising money for MOCA through the Unleash the SHE race. It shows our patients that we care about them and their futures.”
Five dollars of each registration fee goes to MOCA. Participants are encouraged to create their own fundraising page to raise even more money, all of which goes directly to MOCA for ovarian cancer research, support and programming.
“We’re excited to welcome the Unleash the SHE 5K/10K back to Rochester for another year – and we know this fifth year will be bigger and better than ever,” said Kathleen Gavin, MOCA executive director. “MOCA has a strong local presence in the Rochester community, including support groups and local events. We are also connected through our funding commitment to advance ovarian cancer research: MOCA has provided close to $2 million to research projects at the Mayo Clinic since 2002.”
