Reston Triathlon Still Has Space for Athletes

Reston Triathlon 2014

The 33rd annual Reston Triathlon returns on Sunday, Sept. 11. There are still more than 100 spaces left if you want to enter.

The Reston Triathlon is an Olympic-distance event.  The 1,500-meter swim is at Lake Audubon. That’s followed by a 40K bike course, which goes three laps on roads around Reston. Finally, participants finish with a 10K run on Reston paths. The run starts and ends at the South Lakes High School Stadium.

See the course map and information on the Reston Triathlon website.

For added preparation, there will be a swim clinic at Lake Audubon on Sunday, Sept. 4. This is a good opportunity to experience a lake swim so that you know what to expect on Sept. 11, race organizers say. Swim registration will open at 6:30 a.m. The clinic will begin promptly at 7:45 a.m. with instructions by the members of the Reston Master’s Swim team.

Clinic swimmers will be permitted to swim a full mile in open water as long as you are out of the water one hour after the start of your wave.The cost for the clinic and refreshments is $15.00 for those with USAT membership and $25 for those without it.

As of Friday, there were 175 spaces remaining for the triathlon. Registration closes on Sept. 6. Cost: Youth (15-19), $80; Adults, $140.
