• Located just on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. this race takes place at a great venue and is so easy to get to. • Named in honor of Maryland’s fourth governor and the highest ranking Marylander to serve in the Revolutionary War, General Smallwood State Park is ideally situated for a triathlon. • The swim takes place in the pristine Mattawoman Bay, known across the Nation as a top spot for bass fishing. • After a short run to the transition area, athletes will race along 16 miles of rolling hills where most of the traffic is just your fellow triathletes! • Once you’ve laced up your running shoes, you’ll head back to the road for a fast out and back 5K with aid stations every mile. • Run past the restored house called Smallwood’s Retreat towards the finish and you will understand why the General made this area his “Headquarters”!
