HP3 – Duathlon, 10K, & 5K
HP3 hosts a duathlon, 5K, and 10K in beautiful Heritage Park. Heritage Park has been the site for this event for 25+ years and allows athletes to choose from a duathlon, 5K or 10K event, all starting at the HP Marina parking lot in a mass start format. The duathlon is open to individuals and teams comprised of athletes age 16 and older at the end of the current year. Early registration is encouraged!
Kansas Duathlon Series
The Kansas Duathlon Series is for all athletes participating in the following events: HP3 Duathlon, Open Options Shawnee Mission Duathlon, and Prairie Punisher Duathlon. The duathlon series event highlights our partnership with the City of Gardner Parks and Recreation. Duathletes must compete in at least two of the three events to have the opportunity to be recognized as a Kansas Duathlon Series winner. This series is separate and distinct from the USAT regional and national rankings. Athletes competing in these Kansas Duathlon Series events will automatically be placed in the Series Standings by the Points Series Committee.
HP3 - Duathlon Information
The duathlon consists of a 3.1 mile (5K) run, followed by a 15.33 mile (4 laps) bike ride, and a 3.1 mile (5K) run. The run portions are conducted inside Heritage Park, closed off from outside traffic. The bicycle portion is a partially hilly 4 lap course held both within and outside the park boundaries. Individual duathletes must participate and compete in the age group division corresponding to the athlete’s age on December 31st of this year (2016). Duathlon teams will be comprised of three or two individuals executing the three legs of the race in relay fashion. This is a USAT Sanctioned Duathlon.

HP3 – 10K & 5K Information
The 10K & 5K athletes will start with the duathletes in a mass start format on the park road on the dam, close to the marina parking lot. All races will run the first 5K on the same course leading back into the transition area. Once in the transition area, the duathletes will be directed to their bikes, the 5K runners will be directed to the finish line, and the 10K runners will be directed onto the last half of their race.
