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

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

This event benefits the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Friends of Smallwood State Park.
General Smallwood Triathlon is proud to support the groups that support
us. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation fights to keep the water we swim in
clean. The Friends of Smallwood State Park promote activites and
upgrades at our host venue. A nicer park and cleaner water makes for a
more enjoyable race all around. Please consider making a donation to one
or both of these groups during the registration process.
