Radio operators are needed to support the 14th Annual Mohawk Towpath Byway Duathlon will be held on Sunday, October 16th.  Each year the Mohawk Towpath Byway Duathlon attracts top regional multi-sport athletes, as well as recreational runners and bikers. The start, exchange area, and finish are all at Riverview Orchards and the courses are through rural fall foliage lined landscapes along the Mohawk Towpath Scenic Byway.

Awards for first, second, and third place male and female finish in each ten-year increment starting with 19 and under.  Awards also for first place male, female, and mixed teams.

Radio Operators Needed

Radio operators are strategically placed along both the running and biking course to provide real-time updates to the race coordinators and to provide communications should an accident, injury, or illness occur on the race course.

Radio operators receive a moisture wicking polyester tee shirts a Giffy’s Bar-B-Q chicken dinner after the race.
