Sunday: Reston Sprint Tri Will Affect North Reston Roads

2015 Reston Sprint Tri Award Winner/Credit: Reston Sprint TriathlonRoads and paths in North Reston will be affected by the 10th annual Reston Sprint Triathlon on Sunday.

The race begins at 7 a.m. with a quarter-mile swim at the Lake Newport Pool.

The biking portion is a 12-mile loop that involves Reston Parkway, Wiehle Avenue and Baron Cameron Avenue. See the course map on the race website.

Race officials offer this advice to cyclists: “Beware of the turn at Reston Parkway and Wiehle Ave. It is downhill and more than 90 degrees. Also, watch for cars encroaching into the bike lanes at Baron Cameron and Reston Parkway. Drivers may not understand how to make a right turn, when we have closed the turn lane. Bicycle handlebar end caps are required as are serviceable helmets in good condition.”

The 5K run course goes mainly on on bike paths in the Center Harbor/Lake Newport/North Village/Wiehle Avenue area. The start and finish area is adjacent to the Lake Newport Pool.

Affected streets will not be closed, but lanes may be blocked and traffic slowed. As always, watch for participants in the road.

The last participants should wrap up by 9 a.m.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Cornerstones.

See more details about packet pickup, spectator locations, parking and more information on the race site.

There are still volunteer opportunities available.
