The swim takes place in the scenic and calm Potomac River, where
you will swim past Arlington Cemetery and under the Memorial Bridge twice. The
swim start is next to the transition area and the finish line, so family and
friends can watch more of your race!
The bike route is flat
and fast, winding past the Potomac River, the White House, the Washington
Monument, Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, United States Peace Institute, and
the Kennedy Center. There is no bike course like it in the world.
The run route is a challenging and beautiful single-loop that
takes competitors past the Tidal Basin, Jefferson Memorial, National Holocaust
Memorial, US Mint, Hains Point, and more. The finish line is adjacent to the
transition area and swim start making it ideal for family and friends.
The Finish Line Festival has live music, free food for athletes,
free post-race athlete services and instant results printed for you right when
