Fundraising triathlon goes virtual

Posted at 9:55 AM, Jul 20, 2020

The 2020 MPCS Triathlon is going VIRTUAL.

In recent months, COVID-19 has had a major impact on many families in the Acadiana area. In order to ensure the safety and wellness of all supporters and participants, Miles Perret Cancer Services has decided to transition the Triathlon into a Virtual Duathlon. All participants currently registered for the Triathlon will be automatically transferred to the virtual race.

The Duathlon will consist of a 1-mile run, 8-mile bike, and a 2-mile run. Participants can complete events on the course of their choice, measure distance and time on a fitness tracker, and submit results to Cajun Timing once complete. Individuals wanting to participate in the Virtual Duathlon must be registered.

To reserve your spot for the 2020 MPCS Virtual Duathlon or to get more information about Miles Perret Cancer Services and the services they provide, visit or call 337-984-1920.

All proceeds from the duathlon benefit Miles Perret Cancer Services and local families fighting cancer.
