Home to Native Americans for centuries, the English settled the land in the mid 1600’s.

The 2012 Inaugural Blackwater Duathlon provides a challenging course, and has been chosen as the USAT National Long Course Duathlon Championship event, providing an excellent opportunity for athletes to test their limits.
