THE BRICK IS BACK!

The New Balance Palm Desert 1/2 Marathon & 5K are now working with the great folks over at the Tour de Palm Springs to bring back the Brick!

In triathlon, a “brick” is a bike workout followed by a run. So start training for your brick on Saturday and Sunday, February 10 and 11 2018. If you participate in any distance of the Tour de Palm Springs on Saturday, and either the 5K or 1/2 marathon at the New Balance Palm Desert 1/2 Marathon & 5K on Sunday (individual or relay team), you’ll receive the coveted Brick award to show off your achievement!

Here’s how you get your Brick:

  1. Register for both the Tour de Palm Springs and the New Balance Palm Desert 1/2 Marathon & 5K. You can register for the Tour de Palm Springs here, and for the New Balance Palm Desert 1/2 Marathon & 5K here.
  2. Participate in any distance of the Tour de Palm Springs on Saturday, February 10.
  3. Participate in the 1/2 marathon (individual or relay) or 5K at the New Balance Palm Desert 1/2 Marathon & 5K on Sunday, February 11. After completing your event, come to the Brick tent. Show us your Tour de Palm Springs bike number (or proof of participation) and your New Balance Palm Desert 1/2 Marathon & 5K bib, and you’ll get the brick.
