Join Reston's first relay-only triathlon - the Family, Friends and Co-worker's race! This USAT sanctioned event is a great opportunity for those who have always wanted to participate in the triathlon experience but couldn't muster all three disciplines. Grab your brother, sister, parent or cousin or put together a team of friends or co-workers and join the fun. Post race festivities include an awards ceremony and food, beverages and music from Dogfish Head Alehouse - Fairfax.
The swim is a 400-meter serpentine course in the 50-meter Lake Newport Pool. Swimmers enter transition and pass the chip to their biking teammate who leaves the pool parking lot for an 11.5-mile, three loop course on closed lanes on Reston Parkway, Wiehle Avenue and Baron Cameron Avenue. Returning into transition the biker passes the chip to the running teammate who takes off on a beautiful and rolling 3.1-mile course on Reston's paved and mostly shaded community pathways through neighborhoods and parkland.
