LEWISTON - On Sunday, June 27, Museum L-A will launch the inaugural LADU: A Duathlon of Historic Proportion. Starting from the Camden Yarns Mill in the Simard-Payne Park, LADU benefits preservation efforts under way at Museum L-A. The 3 mile run, 14 mile bike and 3 mile finishing run will provide participants of all ages to connect with the history of L-A, this Preserve America destination, like never before. Participants will run amid historic millscapes, cycle along the mighty Androscoggin River and race in the midst of over a century of history in Lewiston-Auburn. This event will culminate with a family fun race expo and awards ceremony. Relay teams and individuals are encouraged to connect and engage with our amazing landscape through LADU. Walmart Supercenter in Auburn and Walmart Logistics has generously provided $4,000.00 to assist in underwriting the cost of this race for preservation.
