Reston Kids Triathlon Will Affect South Reston Roads Sunday

2015 Reston Kids Triathlon/Credit Sean Bahrami for RAThe sixth annual Reston Kids Triathlon is taking place this Sunday, and Reston residents should be aware of blocked lanes on roads — as well as young athletes’ safety — if they are near the course.

The event is organized by Reston Association and the YMCA Fairfax County Reston. Proceeds benefit both nonprofit organizations. Volunteers are still needed for the event.

The event begins at 8 a.m. at Ridge Heights Pool, 11400 Ridge Heights Rd. Parking will not be available at the pool as the parking lot is being used for the bike transition area.

After the swim, the bike course will affect nearby streets:

The 6-8 year olds will 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 Drive, 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.

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.

Registration for the event is full.
