Wilkes-Barre Duathlon

From two feet to two wheels, an event featuring a few of our area's most popular outdoor activities is about to launch in Luzerne County.

The 14th annual Wilkes-Barre Duathlon takes place this Father's Day weekend.

The race features a 3.1-mile run, a 16-mile bike, and a 3.1-mile run through the City of Wilkes-Barre and Hanover Township.

The duathlon can be done as an individual or team.
