The Reston Sprint Triathlon won’t take place until June, but the time to sign up is almost here.
Registration for the June 5, 2016 Sprint Tri opens Jan. 6 at 7:30 p.m. There are 900 spots for the race, but it often sells out — if you are certain you want a spot, save the date.
Here is what you need to know:
The race begins at Lake Newport Pool in North Reston
The course is a “sprint distance” — quarter-mile swim, 12-mile bike ride and three-mile run.
Cost to enter is $150.
Proceeds benefit Reston nonprofit Cornerstones.
The race must be completed in two hours.
For more information and the register, visit the Reston Sprint Triathlon’s website.
