Description:

2014 Washington Olympic & Sprint Triathlon:


Welcome to Washington, NC usually referred to as Little Washington by folks down east! Washington's rich history adds to the character of the community. The settlement of Washington was laid out in 1775 on the northern bank of the Pamlico/Tar River by Colonel James Bonner and named in honor of General George Washington, his commander-in-chief. The City was incorporated by an act of the North Carolina General Assembly in 1782. It became the county seat of Beaufort County in 1785, an honor previously held by the Town of Bath, North Carolina's oldest town, located 15 miles east.

There are numerous towns named Washington in the United States, but Washington, NC, is the first to have been named for General Washington (prior to his being named our nation's first president). Therefore, Washington, NC, is "The Original Washington."

The Olympic and Sprint run course will be an out and back through downtown Washington Waterfront!  The Olympic will do 2 loops and the Sprint a straight out and back.  Water stations are provided at the transition area exit, 1 mile mark and the run turnaround.  The finish line is across the street from the transition area.

The race course revolves around a transition area next to Washington Park Waterfront.  The same transition area will be used for all phases.  The transition area will open at 5am; ALL bikes need to be placed in position before the transition area closes at 6:45am.
