53 Strong DeAthlon

Running, Bicycling, Cheerleading

The 53 Strong DeAthlon 2019 will be held August 10 at Marvin Town Centre in Waxhaw, NC. The DeAngelo Williams Foundation’s “DeAthlon” event isn’t your traditional run-bike-run, it's a run-bike-FUN course. DeAthletes can choose to either race the entire course solo or relay as a 2 person team...not ready for both?... you can also sign up to do just the 5K or just the bike portion. The DeAthlon race consists of a 3.4 mile run (timed at the traditional 5K distance) followed by 20 road miles of cycling with a memory game along the bike route that will test the mind, body, and sole (ya see what we did there?) The distances are accolades to DeAngelo’s jersey numbers while playing football, 34 with the Panthers and Steelers and 20 while playing for the University of Memphis Tigers. The 53 Strong DeAthlon is the creation of DeAngelo’s love-hate relationship with running and biking combined with his passion for a little fun and games.
