Thank You for 20 Amazing Years!

DQ Events put on their first race on Saturday, August 31, 2002, Labor Day Weekend. The Marlton Lakes Triathlon/Duathlon was a short 1/4 mile swim, 11 mile bike, and a 5k run. It was a great community event and led to the start of the company you all know today.

The front of the shirt is the 20th Anniversary logo and the back will be the list of all of the races DQ Events has put on over the past 20 years, including a new one from October 2022, the Halloween Trick or Treat 10 Miler & Frightening 5k!

If you ‘re looking a great gift for that someone special or even for yourself, look no further!  Visit our STORE and get our Special 20th Anniversary T-Shirt and help celebrate 20 years that DQ Events has been around!  Don’t miss out!  We will NOT be restocking once they are gone.  The price is $25 (includes shipping) and limited quantity is available.  Sizes range from Small-XXL.
