Estell Manor

Great Pumpkin Duathlon & 5K Race

Saturday, October 7th at 8am

Estell Manor Park, 109 Route 50, Mays Landing

This race was created 20 years ago and ran for 10 consecutive years.  It was started as part of the grass roots multi discipline sport program and we have decided to bring it back as that same non-commercialized event that focuses on the race and the great workout. There are very few stand-alone Duathlons around.  Why share the race course with Triathletes?  Give this race a ‘go’.

Racers will receive a race T-shirt, finisher medal and small pumpkin.  This year’s race benefits the Oakcrest High School Crew Team. Register online at active.com.
