Kiepersol Winery: 21508 Merlot Ln, Tyler, United States
What is the Diva Du?
The Diva Du 2019 will be held April 27, 2019 at Kiepersol's Winery and Distillery. East Texas' first and only exclusively women's event. We are offering a Sprint and Olympic distance in addition to relay teams and a 5k for those who want to join the fun without a bike involved! I got in trouble for calling it "beginner friendly" when I should have said it was a beginner's distance. Our Divas have continued to rock it out and earn the bragging rights that come from climbing East Texas hills!
Our Sprint duathlon will consist of a 1.5 mile run, 10 mile bike, and 1.5 mile run. Our Olympic distance, 3ish mile run, 25ish mile bike, and 3ish mile run.
We are always excited to have Abuelo's hosting our post-race food as well as our local and amazing wine from Kiepersol's vineyard. We will continue our tradition of iTRI365 signature event drinks - Sangria and Vitmosas! We will also continue to keep our vendors local and women oriented. We want to support moms and women business owners who love and give back to this community in so many awesome ways.
