The Reston Kids Triathlon gets underway Sunday at 8 a.m. While registration for the annual event for kids ages 6 to 14 is full, here is what you should know if you are cheering for your favorite athlete or simply live near the course.
The course varies depending on age group.
Race begins at Ridge Heights Pool, 11400 Ridge Heights Rd.
Bike course: 6-8 year olds ride down Ridge Heights Road from the Ridge Heights Pool to Seahawk Drive and then back to the pool. Older kids will leave Ridge Heights Pool and head east to South Lakes Drivel west to Soapstone Drive to right on Ridge Heights Road in a two-mile loop (9-11 year olds will do one loop; 12-14 year olds will do two loops).
Roads will not be closed, but lanes will be blocked for race safety.
Run course: The run portion will take place on paths around Langston Hughes Middle School, South Lakes High School and Terraset Elementary School. Visit the race web page to see exact details by age group.
The race can still use volunteers.
Proceeds benefit Reston Association and YMCA Fairfax County Reston programs.
