The DeAngelo Williams Foundation’s 53 Strong DeAthlon is back!

Saturday, August 5, 2023

Lace-up your running shoes and jump on your bike because The DeAngelo Williams Foundation is back for its 4th annual 53 Strong DeAthlon! The “DeAthlon” isn’t your typical duathlon, it’s a run-bike-FUN event including a memory challenge along the ride courses. Come join us for the fun and put your endurance, mental, and physical abilities to the test.

“DeAthletes” can participate individually or start/join a team. Those registering for the DeAthlon will participate in a 3.4 mile run followed by their choice of one of three bike distances. However, if you’re not ready to “Du” it, you can also sign up for only the 5K or just one of the bike ride distances.

Location: Marvin Ridge High School, 2825 Crane Road, Waxhaw NC

The Run: The run is a traditional 5k that will begin at 7:00AM.

The Rides: Your choice of three distance routes that take you through beautiful downtown Waxhaw, NC begin at 8 am:

  • The Tiger Trail 20 Mile Ride: includes one rest stop, one timed segment
  • The Carolina Cruise 34 Mile Ride: includes one rest stop, two timed segments
  • The Legacy Length 53 Mile Ride: includes two rest stops, three timed segments

There is a mass start for all cycliststs at 8:00am, however DeAthletes can start any time after finishing the run. All routes will be clearly marked, have refueling stations, and include sag support.

The DeAthlon: The DeAthlon consists of the 3.4 mile run followed by your choice of a 20, 34, or 53 mile bike ride which includes a memory game along the bike route. To crown the champions, the combined time of the run and the timed bike segments for each distance will determine the Top 3 Males and Top 3 Females that will receive a custom DeAthlon event football signed by DeAngelo Williams.
