The Duo Duel is back again for 2013 in Portland! The unique race is a fantastic opportunity for a team of two to each race a 5k while featuring live music, food, prizes, and all in the heart of downtown Portland. The race is benefits Learning Works. Learning Works is a great community based organization that provide the best learning opportunities in Maine for at-risk youth, the immigrant community and low-income families. This year’s event will take place on August 24, 2013 at 8:00 A.M.! The race features four divisions: Male, Female, Co-Ed and Organization. Awards go to first place and second place duo’s in each category.
This is a fun and unique run! You begin on commercial avenue and you run the “canyon” on Commercial to the path along the beautiful East End beach, up Cutter St then up to the Eastern Promenade. After grabbing some water at the Bangor Savings stop, you head down Fore St, left on Hancock, head back to Commerical and back to Start/Finish/Handoff!

The race has a very simple message. 1. To put on a great race! 2. Have it include the best teamwork possible. 3. To have it rooted in the state of Maine. The race does all three extremely well. The live music is from local musicians, the race packet gifts from local companies and the first 150 registrants receive logo t-shirts designed by a local Maine company.
Come out and enjoy the Duo Duel 2013!
